SkyWatch Friday



If you mount your camera on a tripod and set your shutterspeed to more than 30 sec (bulb) and point your lens up to the sky you get this effect. It seem like the stars are moving.. surprise.. it is not. It is of course the rotation of our planet. I used shutterspeed 2837 sec on the first one and 1538 on the last one. That equals 47 minutes and 25 minutes. Be sure to have enough battery power :-)

  10. Fabelaktige bilder Ivar, det blir så utrolig stilig når man tar seg tid til slike bilder. Ha en fin helg der oppe og kos dere med stjernene, her er det bare "eget måneskinn" som preger aftenen. Snø er det ute også...
