See what our 50+ students do in Cape Town: STAR TRAILS by Erich Meyer

Author: · July 15. 2011 · 50+ English Tuition Package, Students

Star Trails, Table Mountain, Cape Town

This picture is a collection of 620 single images, taken with a digital camera and a 24mm x 36mm sensor. A wide angle lens was used (17mm). The camera was fixed on a tripod and was oriented towards the south. Due to the motion of the Earth (daily motion) the stars appear as trails (star trails). All star trails are bending around the South Pole.

Complete time of exposure for all images: 3 hours, taken on 5 July 2011 from 8:30pm to 11:30pm.

Clear sky
