Great brandstaetter 2009-12-21 11:43

Hi Didier,
an extraordinary sight, normally you can see the concentric circles of the wandering stars, here it´s like they are flying somewhere due to the lens distortion of the extreme wide angle. Why f/4 and high ISO ? Maybe the effect is even better with ISO 100, f/11 and the triple expossure time ?
In any case a masterpiece.
Ciao Christian

1. concentric circles: that's you have if you point to the north, here you can see the galactic equator making a diagonal from top left to low right, thus the upper are turning around the north star and the lower around south
2. f/4 and 400 iso: well, the sky was lighten quick, and I was too lazy for standing 15 minutes doing nothing in the cold :p

Hi Didier,
thanks, now I see clearly...and I´m thinking already about the possibilities to use the galactic equator for image formations. And you have to get up earlier next time :p
Have a nice evening, and furthermore Frohe Weihnachten ! LG Christian
