Star Trails - paintings on the canvas of night sky

Star Trails - paintings on the canvas of night sky

Astrophotography requires both luck and patience. When it comes to capturing star trails, it is no different. I was always fascinated by the star trail photos and wanted to capture one of mine. After a week of failed attempts, finally I was able to capture this, my first successful star trail photo.

At the start, the constellation Aquarius was just rising above the east horizon. The second one is for an exposure of 30 minutes and the last one is for an exposure of an hour.
