Star Trails by Michel Samson

Photo of the Week for March 14, 2014

Star Trails by Michel Samson
Michel Samson of Quebec City, Quebec, recently submitted his first image to SkyNews — this shot showing star trails over his cottage observatory. The building’s fibreglass dome is illuminated by interior red lights. Michael used his Nikon D300 DSLR camera at ISO 800, and a zoom lens set to 24mm focal length at f/2.8. He combined 300, 30-second exposures with StarStaX software to create his final image.
