I was so amazed at how bright Jupiter trailed in this star trail composite. Captured in my back garden. As the software stacked each of the 1600 still captures it was like watching the ISS as Jupiter crawled across the screen. Captured with Olympus E3, 12-60mm lens. Camera started at 2200hrs on 16th until 6am the following morning. The opposite curvature of the trails (due to the stars location above and below the celestial equator) makes a magical composition.
