Over Great Fountain Geyser. 30s shutter, ISO 400, f3.5. Put camera on burst mode and left the wired-remote locked. Looks like the stars (sensor, camera?) moved between each shot?

Thoughts? Should I try mirror lockup? Very new to this :)

Thanks!

Ryan

Guess I should note that the stars DUMID move :) But I'm not sure where the jerkiness came from.

Heya,

Was the ground vibrating? Was it a bit windy? What were conditions like?

Very best,

I quite like the effect. It looks like they have been drawn in chalk

Maybe it was a precursor to the Yellowstone Caldera (external link) :eek:

The camera definitely moved because the same pattern is in every startrail. Shimmer from rising heat could cause it I guess, but I would think that would not affect all the stars the same.

each individual frame itself shows clear stars and foreground?

The foreground seems to be clear after stacking....can't tell from what you posted
