Star Streaks

On the Friday night of the IISAC2013 AstroCamp, I went for a drive up along the ridge overlooking the camp and found this great paddock with this great tree I used to silhouette against the sky.

During this 20 minute exposure, a cow moving behind me scared the crap out of me, especially when I turned around and my red headlamp reflected off its eyes – so now it was an evil cow with red eyes just waiting for me to turn my back again :)

This is a single 20 minute exposure, taken with the Canon 6D and Samyang 14mm lens @ ISO800. I think the f/stop was around f/5.6.

The clouds really provided some great depth during this exposure, and I love the longĀ streaksĀ from the long exposure.

Thanks for looking.

  1. This is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing this. Having lived in 4 various sized cities in the last 3 years, it was magical to be able to look up and finally see proper stars when we were in a less population dense area. I missed being able to see the stars.

      Thanks Jean, much appreciated. I know what you mean – I’m fortunate enough to live only an hour or two drive away from nice dark skies. I’m about an hour north of Sydney.
