My first real effort at this- D700 & 20mm f2.8.
Exposures are aproximately 10min, 20min, and 30min.
Excellent! Unfortunately, here in NYC we have too much light noise to capture anything like you have...........great work and thanks for sharing.
Very nice, must give this a go soon, now that the longer colder nights are up on us.
Like these a lot, Jeff.
These are really nice, Jeff. You must have some good dark skies. Thanks for posting these.
nice pics! awesome shots!
I really like the first one. Is that light trail from a plane? I would like it a lot better without, but I guess it's quite a lot of work to clone that out between all those star trails.
F2.8 @ 10 min.,20 min., and 30 min? Gdad, what speed setting did you use?
Nice shots !
That is really cool. How is this done. It is pretty dark where I live. The 3rd one actually made me dizzy.
these make me dizzy
I really like the first. The first with a 20 or 30 minute exposure would have been amazing with the longer star trails.
These are fantastic. I have been wondering how the FF sensor copes with long exposures - and now I know the answer! Thanks for sharing......
For those looking for an easy technique on making star trail photos...see this link
Here are a couple of examples
Star Trails over the George Washington Bridge - 2 hour exposure
Star Trails over Manhattan - 45 minute exposure
Outstanding Gdad ! Wish I had dark skies like that
wow thats cool
very cool ive been wondering how to accomplish this for some time
As far as ISO is concerned it would have to be a lower ISO.
I'd also be interested to know what ISO was used.
This mostly interests me after all the banding posts that were out about the D700 shortly after they came out. I even have a few shots that show horrible banding from stars when I shot some night shots at ISO 3200 and above. Hence why I suspect a lower ISO as banding isn't showing up in these shots which I'm very happy to see as I hadn't got around to doing my own tests just yet with lower ISO's.
But I will be doing some soon.
