Yesterday it was a very clear night, so it was the ideal moment to shoot some startrails. The picture was made at the Vlooybergtoren in Tielt-Winge, Belgium. In the summer of 2013 I made a similar shot with the same composition, however it was full moon back then, resulting in only a few visible stars. This time it was extremely clear with many stars visible, even though there’s a fair amount of light pollution in the area.
The startrail is composed out of +/-80 shots @ 30sec, F4, Iso 1600. For the foreground an extra shot was used @ 5min exposure, F4, Iso 200.
Below is a single shot from the series, with a slightly different crop.
