Sabattus River Star Trails....

Sunday night I went to Sabattus River to try my hand at Star Trail photography. This was my first attempt and it wasn't that difficult. The first thing I did was download some free software that combines all the images called Star Stax, a Google search will find the free download website. Afterward, I just went to Youtube and watched a video on how to use the software, pretty easy. This photo happens to be a compilation of 90 images taken in a 45 minute time span. I would've taken more but I got cold and a bank of clouds was moving in from behind me so it would've obscured the stars. I made sure to point my camera north so I would get the circular pattern, another section of sky and the streaks would've appeared as arcs.
