Sensor overheating risks in star trail photography
Nov 1, 2012

I have always been fascinated by star trail photographs and would like to experiment with my Canon 450D. I am worried that long exposures might harm the sensor of my camera, particularly in a warm country like India where I will be working in a temperature of around 15 degree C or about 60 degree F. Could experts please share their thoughts on this subject? Am I worrying too much? Or is there reason to worry about? Most of the star trail shots I have seen are from cold climes. What is the experience of star trail photographers in the tropics?

Thanks and regards
