a marvelous shot! i'm amazed by your dedication to plan it for a year! i myself am making my first steps in star and startrail photography and thus would like to ask you to share your camera settings and if you would be so generous some advice on that matter?
I agree but some hints and tips can help me explore and given the fantastic photos you have i thought where better to ask then here. May i ask how did you plan those photos? with the help of a program such as stellarium or? tnx for the friendly response btw
