This is the first (and last) time I attempted to take a picture of the night sky. Before I went to Botswana, I read loads on how to stack images and how to take star trails, but typically forgot everything by the time I got there!
This was the third shot of the night, and the best. It was taken in my families village, where the only electricity comes from a generator (hence the light), the closest village with mains electricity is 15Km away, and the nearest town with street lights is 40Km away (both to the left hand side of the image). There was a half moon that night which was on the right hand side of the camera.
40D, 17-85 @17mm, f4.5, 56 secs, ISO 1000, tripod, remote release.
This was taken from a single exposure, but it probably could do with re-working in CS3 (again!) as I get a bit better at doing it each time.
Anyway, what do you think?
Thanks for looking
