Star Trails at Cape Lookout Lighthouse

Here’s another one of Cape Lookout Lighthouse that I shot on the same trip as yesterday’s photo. It’s a stack of 32 4-minute exposures. I was very careful to line up Polaris precisely  above the lighthouse. I’m not crazy about the glare in the bottom part of the image, but hey, what do expect when you point a lens at an 800,000 candlepower light?
