I have been wanting to go out and take star trails for quite a while, but never had the opportunity. I finally decided to just go out on short notice and take some shots about an hour away from home on the Marineland, FL coastline. I knew it was going to be a long morning when my head lamp stopped working. The humidity at the beach was also causing a lot of condensation on my camera and lens, so I had to wipe the lens down every so often. Unfortunately, this slightly moved my composition, so this one took quite a while in post processing to align all the stars again. Despite all this, I am pretty happy with the results and enjoyed the challenge.
This is my first star trails shot and I would love any comments or criticism you guys can offer.
I used a Nikon D5100 @ 11mm; ~1.5 hrs of exposures (f/2.8, 30s, ISO 640)
