Thanks! Does it only operate in photoshop? I have Elements. And does it run on mac?

I think it is only compatible with PS, but I could be wrong. BTW, in case you weren't aware, Adobe is offering PS and LR for $10/month so no reason not to get it.

Oh man! no you didn't, a star trail with cape hatteras. Man i wan't to do this the next time i visit OBX Would you like to divulge the setup? Awesome photo.

Unfortunately there was a lot of condensation that night, so the star trails were the only decent photo I walked away with. Canon 6d with 35mm f/1.4 10sec ISO 3200. I believe I ended up with 95 images being used to create the star trail.

This was my first attempt. Shot in Flagstaff, AZ. Nowhere near as good as some of the ones in here!

I didn't have a tracking mount for comet lovejoy, so I tried stacking 6 second exposures on a tripod. It wasn't very impressive so I turned it into a startrail image and thought it turned out kind of cool.

well done Ian
a great start :)

what lens and exposure length etc did you use ?


EDIT ... OK your flkr site has some of that info
for future pix it would be good to include focal length used ... which was ?


cheers
Dave


A picture is worth 1000 words ;)

Not sure why, but I think I missed posting this here back when I took it at the beginning of the year. Apologies to all if it's a duplicate:
