irm: I would say by looking at the photo he has the flash aimed high. More details about lens, settings etc would have been nice?

Yes, that reminds me of when the K1 was announced. I went to one of the in-store demonstrations. The Pentax rep there explained the advantage of Astro Tracer to keep the stars as points rather than trails. I asked him "surely if the stars are sharp, the foreground's going to be blurred?"

To which he replied "No, and don't call me Shirley" . . . I made that bit up ;-)

Rep: "No"
Me: "How does that work, then?"
Rep: "Magic!"

I wasn't sure at the time that I entirely believed him.

Although, in the OP image, the hot-shoe mounted flash would have overridden the blurring to some extent.

Or use the AstroTracer feature on a Pentax K1 which moves the sensor in time with the stars

NJHr: You couldn't make this JIF stuff up. If it was actually JIF rather than GIF than in several countries they would end up saying HIF as the J is difficult for some to pronounce. Its as daft as when Unilever changed the name of Jif cleaner to Cif despite forgetting that here Cif sounds like an STD.

I could never understand the logic of changing the name of Jif cleaner to Cif, as now I never know whether it's pronounced Sif or Kif.

Where does the photographer hide to avoid being seen in every shot?
