Nightly Night Photo – PARI Star Trails 2

Star trails at PARI radio telescope

Star trails at PARI radio telescope. Nikon D700, Nikon 17-35 f/2.8 lens, F/4, ISO 400, stack of 27 3-minute exposures.

Here’s another view of the 26-mtere radio telescope that I showed in yesterday’s post. You always want to shoot as many compositions as you can of your subjects, even if each setup requires a couple of hours as it did in these cases.

This is a stack of 27-3 minute exposures. I shot this one from a little farther back and didn’t light paint the telescope as with yesterday’s photo. The star trails in this shot have a lot more emphasis and look good, but without the strong foreground, the image would fail.

Remember, find something interesting to go with those star trails.
