    ive recently become captivated by star trail photography and thought id give it a bit of a go, the very first time i tried them i ended up with 150ish raw 30 second exposures that nearly blew up my computer, so that put me off trying them for a little while haha. i later decided to try with fewer, longer exposures.
    these are the next two of my dabbling in star trails:

    1. i had another version of this one id filled in the gaps of the trails and played with the curves/brightness, but i dunno where that ended up...

    2. from a recent trip to the coast, i always love how bright the stars are when theres no light pollution around.
