Smiling Star Trail Taken the evening of 9/5/13

The effect is captured with a 3 prism repeat filter. No after effects edited in or out just camera output processed. The lens used was 28-90mm wide angle.

A star trail is a type of photograph that utilizes long-exposure times to capture the apparent motion of stars in the night sky due to the rotation of the Earth. A star trail photograph shows individual stars as streaks across the image, with longer exposures resulting in longer streaks. Typical exposure times for a star trail range from 15 minutes to several hours. This was a 6 hour exposure. About 750 frames were captured to produce the final image.

Taken with a
Canon T2i
F 4.5
ISO 400
Exposure of 30 seconds
