Last night I went out to get a star trail of the night sky over Woomelang. The weather has been a bit crazy the last couple of days, but I had hoped that with the skies starting to clear that I might be able to get a good series of images that I could stack together to do a star trail. While we could see the stars, we could also see that there were lots of clouds about, so I only tried for an hour. When I saw the photos many of the stars were hidden by the clouds, so imagine my surprise when I did the stacking and saw this.
It seems the clouds didn’t matter. I wish I had stayed longer now.
This was only the second time I have attempted to do these. They take so long and you really need to be somewhere where you can get a good foreground. I think I am going to have to start doing some camping, so I can take lots of and lots of these. I can just set the camera up and take photos for a few hours, while I sleep in a tent. That would be good.
The other issue is that you really don’t know what you are getting until you put them on the computer and see. It is all trial and error and you spend a lot of time doing them, and then if you don’t get something right, then it is too late, you have wasted a couple of hours.
I don’t really know what I am doing, and still playing around, but I do know I want to try this some more. Woomelang and places around here are perfect for doing this, so I am going to have to keep trying when I come up.
