thanks john!!


..and yeah, was hoping for more trails spinning in the reflection, but, i think due to the fact there was a little mist hanging all over the lake, that it kinda diffused the trails a bit..better luck next time:eager:

I'm unfamiliar with this kind of work but I think it is a lovely effect-- something I'd be interested in seeing/learning more of.

A real nice start to what I'm sure will be a many more star trail sessions! Great pink and purple color in the sky. Keep on experimenting, Doug! :)

good to hear! for beginners, would you suggest a single exposure or go for multiples to layer?
your shot gave me the urge to go out last night..cloudy skies :( hope your patience can last til the next NW clear sky..thinking 2014 or something like that.. :P
truly my pleasure Doug..thanks again :D

np!..i would start w/multiples(longer singles are harder on the sensor)...just take a few test shots to get your exposure down and go for it...i'd start around f/4-5.6 @ iso 400 or 200..and no mirror lock on or image review or any nr setting that might cause delay...part of the fun of it for me was figuring out my settings for whatever scene i'm in front of...enjoy!:)!

ahh..i remember a while back askin about how you merge to line them up..my first try i didnt turn off the settings and had to wait five minutes for the image to process which made gaps in my trails:B ..think i have my exposures close though :] another solar storm coming our way tomorrow, if no auroras, hopefully get some star trail action..or at least somewhat of a clear sky! :crossesfingers: thanks so much buddy :highfive:
