Singleton Park Star-Trail

It was a clear night last night, and I just had to try out a star-trail shot, even though my wide-angle lens is away for repair. This was taken with my next-widest lens: a 50mm f/1.8.

  2. Looks very good Jeremy.....nice done again.

    Greetings, Joop

  4. Actually, Adrian, I've found the timer I bought - it's this one:
