9 Star Trails Exposure Length Examples

Have you ever wondered how star trails would be in a photo based on how long the camera recorded the star "movement"? I thought it would be helpful and interesting to see how star trails look over different periods of time, so I created this gallery. Check out the photos below to see exposures of 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes, 40 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes, 120 minutes, 180 minutes, and 235 minutes.
