I am opening a thread to post your Star Trail pictures, and please add a description to your photos, how long is the exposure, and how many exposures were stacked together. And it would be nice to hear about your setup, I will contribute mine once I get them better processed, but I love this type of photography it's very magical and spiritual. Silverwolf

Question when you shoot star trails do you focus on the forground or focus on the stars, i need to start my focus before it gets to dark. I guess take test shots and see if the stars with the forground looks good

If there's a foreground, use a flashlight and focus on it.. If the foreground isn't important, focus on infinity and switch to MF

Here's two shots from last New Years Eve out in Valley of the Gods in Utah.
The first shot is about an 80 image stack that I pulled from several hundred frames from an all-night timelapse. The second shot is 75 image stack.
