My first attempt at star trails

Illustration for article titled My first attempt at star trails

In my backyard, I put my Canon T6i on a tripod and since I don’t have a shutter lock, I set it to continuous timer mode (after 10 seconds it takes 10 consecutive exposures) on 30", f/3.5, ISO 800, and for a first time experimenting, I’m pretty pleased. 55 shots came out as my battery died in the middle of the last 10. I used StarStax on the gap filling setting with comet mode enabled. I didn’t edit any of the individual images since it was just a quick thing, but edited the final product in VSCO. Original image below and feedback is welcome.
