Camera: Nikon D-300 with 18-55 mm wide angle lens set at 18mm, with MC-36 remote.
This backyard star trail Image, is a result of stacking 60 individual digital exposures. Each exposure was 35 seconds in duration. The camera was set to manual, at bulb with F/4.5 for an aperture. Lenses I use for this type of work are Nikon 18-55mm standard wide angle, and the Tokina 11-16mm ultra wide angle lens. Image developed in Lightroom3 and Photoshop CS2
To provide foreground interest, various areas in the yard, and the house, were exposed (painted) briefly, with a small incandescent flash light during one of the 36 second intervals. Lights in the house were turned on for approximately 2 -3 seconds. The white haze in the middle right of the image is exhaust from the furnace vent, which can also be seen coming from a residence next door at lower left.
It's simply a 36 minute view of time gone by.
