Today I show you how to shoot star trails at night. If you’ve ever wondered how people get those long lines in the sky, this is how! It is a different way to show the night skies in your astrophotography and can add another skill set when you go out taking photos of the night sky.
There are a few different way to shoot star trails photography and in this video I show you two of those ways. One way produces lots of shots, but you can also get a timelapse and still shots from it. The second way is less data heavy but the only thing you can get from it are star trails.
Also Charles from NightSkyPix got in contact and they have an amazing resource for shooting star trails…lots of handy information on getting star trails all on one blog, check it out: https://nightskypix.com/how-to-photog…
