Startrails over the Maroon Bells Wilderness

I have been experimenting with creating star-trail images with my older night time-lapses.  By combining multiple individual images i can get results like this.

I have a quick explination of how i create these images in this post: Star Trails and Stacking

This shot is about 60 individual images with the exposure of:

  • ISO 2500
  • F/ 1.4
  • 24mm
  • 24 seconds

The camera was the Canon 5D markII with the Canon 24mm 1.4 mounted on Manfrotto 055CXPRO3  with a Manfrotto 498RC2 ball head.
