  • Notes: A five hour exposure showing the trailing of stars as they rotate around a common point, the North Celestial Pole; I was actually surprised how well this shot turned out given the fact I used no vacuum back during the exposure; at 45° North, it is difficult to capture the North Celestial Pole with a decent foreground subject (e.g. windmill) since it is so high in the sky.
