445 Photos That Make Up One Photo of Star Trails

Underneath a Starry Sky

This is a photo of star trails that I made in my backyard. This gallery contains all 445 images that were used to create the composite. Before creating the final composite, I looked at each image and cloned out any airplane trails, and darkened some things in a few of them that were little too bright to include in the final product. I did leave the shooting star, though...I considered that a bonus. :) It is in image number 252 . Also for fun I put together a time lapse video of all the images in succession (I left all the airplane trails in for this) The finished product contains the same EXIF data as the final image, and the EXIF for each individual image is below. Thanks for looking!
