Hi Peteo,

Congrats with your birds and startrails. Like them. Specially the startrail.
Wonder, how do you plan you next startrail?

You may make multiple exposures and stack them. You might consider lightpolution filter?

And maybe you're able to get it a tad better in focus, taking some short testpictures before the longer exposures?

Will be in Spain end of next week hopefully, maybe I'll give it a try as well. So that's why I try to imagine the practicalities of it.

Can't wait to see your (and others) next try at it.

Kind Regards / Met vriendelijke groet,

Thanks Jetze,

I'm gonna try my 50mm at f2.8 to see how that turns out and also try my wide angle Sigma.  I agree on the focus, next time I'll utilize live view to see if I can nail the focus a bit better.

Have a great trip to Spain.
