Great AandK 2006-01-22 18:02

I'm not that smart... I missed the northern star as a dot right in the middle of the circles and then I realised your homecountry:)
Sorry for that! How did you know that the result wouldn't be a totally white picture?
Very impressive result. Looks like the earths spinning is pretty balanced.
Thanks for the effort...

Default To AandK: Being smart

Hey it is not about being smart, but about trial and error.
There is no south pole star, but that one in the centre is fairly close.
As for a totally white shot, well if there is no moon, (esential for this type of photo), and no light from a town or city, and I was about 200km from the nearest town, then it will work. I did have problems with clouds and rain sometime later, but this night was perfect.
I am glad that the earth spins in a regular path, otherwise we would be in for a rough trip.
