I promised a while back that I would do some star trail photography, because the Canon 6D allows for that with the "Blub" mode. Now I'm able to hold that promise.

Last night I went out to shoot some new material (more on that later), and stopped by the city park. The sky was bright and clear, and you could see the stars well. I set everything up, took the shots, and these are the first two results.

For the first exposure the shutter stayed open for 11 minutes. F-stop 8, ISO 100, 50 mm

This second one was shorter. Shutter stayed open for 2:30 minutes. F-stop 8, ISO 100, 50 mm

I will do a tutorial on this subject matter soon, and explain how you can get images like these. Also I will try it out more myself. The park last night wasn't an ideal place to do this, I will talk about that more in the tutorial. But I think that the images came out nicely.
