This is my first attempt at star trails. It was so dark I had to manually focus (guess) and then I tried light painting the tractor with a flashlight. This is a 649 sec exposure at f7.1 ISO 100. There was a bright full moon behind me.
Thanks for looking.
David

Amazing. Great work with the flashlight as well. Gotta love the JD green and yellow. Despite the long exposure shot still looks fairly crisp.

I'd hang it on my wall :)

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Trial and error (and some luck). I tried a couple shorter exposures that were too dark and the star trails were too short so I thought I'd see what 10min would do.
