It was a clear (ish) night last night so I did the star trail thing in my garden. The camera (Canon EOS 300D and TAMRON 17mm ADAPTALL lens) was placed on a tripod and pointed to the northern sky. I used a timer/cable release (purchased on EBAY for less than £20.00) to make a 10 second exposure every 30 seconds for about 3 hours. Of the 421 images produced (processed in LIGHTROOM) I took out all of the images where the stars were obscured by clouds and most of those which were ruined by passing aircraft). That left just under 300 files which were then imported to a program called STARTRAILS (free if you search for it on the web). This is the end result.
