I have been wanting to photograph star trails for some time now. However, living around Pittsburgh and the amount of light pollution we have is not conducive for this type of photograph. When I was in Canada I took the opportunity to take hundreds of photographs so that I could build a few images. The first evening there was some light cloud cover so that evening was a waste. Saturday and Sunday were perfect and one of the resulting images is below. This was taken from the deck of the cottage facing north. Not so bad for my first try. I probably needed to let the camera run for another 30 minutes but I was getting tired and called it a night.
