Thank you! :)

There are usually two ways for doing this:

- Long Exposure (around 2.5 hours for the first one and 5 for the second), high ISO (800ish) and open lens (f2.8 - f4...).

- I did it this way as it results in a less noisy image and I have more control over the final result: Many continuous shots of something like 30-300seconds with high ISO and open lens. First image is made of about 250 images of 30 sec (around 2.5 hours). After that, I use Startrails freeware to add them up (very easy and straight forward).

It is interesting to note that every star turns around the Polaris star that always marks the north, and is seen on the same angle as the latitude we are in. In my case latitude is 28º so I look north and up 28º and there it is...

I made an 11 seconds time-lapse video with the images where you can see the rotation:

But the best thing is to be up there (around 1850m), lie down, and enjoy the spectacle of a clear starry sky... :)

I do a bit of picture taking too.
Had some articles submitted to stevehuffphoto.com

Mostly Film, and travel stuff.



I have two digital cameras - iphone 5s and a Kodak Z990 superzoom.

And four Film:
A Contax G2 35mm, a Rolleiflex SLX II 6x6 Medium Format, a Fuji TX2 (aka Hasselblad XPan II) Panoramic and an Olympus Pen F 1/2 Frame.
