Following up the longest blog post I’ve ever done – I’ll go short. Real short. This is my office at night. Coyote Ridge. I love long exposure and this one is my longest. Let’s call it 5 hours long. But it’s not one exposure. I used a software program called Startrails written by Achim Schaller from Freiburg, Germany. It combines multiple exposures into a single image and it’s a powerful, powerful program. Lots to play with in terms of both user controls as well as which images to input into the analysis. I learned that one or two lighter images will really brighten up the finished product quickly. Thanks Achim – this program is a gem. Click on photo to enlarge.
Can you guess what the brightness in the right part of the frame represents?
