These are really cool! Is there a website that explains how to do the star trails?

Also I noticed your bottom star trail pic the top half of the star trails curve up while the bottom half curve down. How is that possible?

Thx Teva - I tried to find appropriate foreground last night for the necklace - nightime bar on east shore of a small lake, then the clouds moved in ....
as usual your images are really nice.

This is the perfect moon image TC ! Brightness IMHO is perfect and projects how the moon actually looks when viewing through a scope or BIG binocs ! When I imaged the moon in the past this is what I always tried to shoot for . So many make their moon shots too dark therefore not projecting a true moon shot . However they are hard to get this way without imaging with the correct exposure as you have done so .

Thank you Ron :) Indeed, I tried to deliver a picture of what I see through an eyepiece ( and a ND filter ;) ) on the big 26" f/4 here. Not too much contrast, not too much sharpening, and I'm quite happy with the result :D Like you Ron, I'm still learning ;)

Thank you for the link! From what I see in the graphics I should be in line to also get opposing star trails as I am pretty near Lake Michigan which the 'line' appears to go thru or at least near.

You get this when you get parts of both celestial hemispheres in the shot. Right at the celestial equator, the lines are straight. On either side, they curve in opposite directions. So i this shot, he was shooting in a direction that he could see parts of both the Northern and Southern celestial hemispheres.

First thing you might do is post a smaller image so it can be seen better . Is this taken at moonrise as to the color reason or did you edit the color ? If it's moonrise on the horizon and it's the original color then that's fine but if it was high in the sky it would be better to change to grayscale . It's almost impossible to get a sharp focus on a moon at the horizon cause of atmospheric distortion . For cleaner more sharper images it's best to wait til the moon is above 40-deg in the sky . But like I said if this is a horizon shot there's not much more you can do to it .

Haha, actually I'm living in the Southern Hemisphere, at 17° S latitude :lol:
I indeed rotated the image a bit, to put Tycho toward the South ;)
