Astrophotography – Star Trails at Mount Coot-tha

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Oct 30 2011

Kinda got back to this after so many years. Haven’t been taken much of star trails for a few reasons. The change over from film to digital means the change in how it is taken. One single long exposure will result in a lot of noise generated.  I just ain’t ready to learn and try at that time. Another reason is that not many people are interested back years ago and finding accompany is difficult. I would not want to go out to the forest alone. This is probably the main reason. Thanks to digital now, taken any star field and star trail photos are made much easier. It’s not too hard anymore to find accompany as photography gets easier and more popular.

The 2 images below are taken at Mount Coot-tha. Mount Coot-tha isn’t the best location and not one of the locations i will recommended. It is too close to city and suffers from very bad light pollutions. Very sadly i found the sky from my front yard is even darker than it. Surprisingly though, the star trails turn out to be alright. I reckon the way those car trails are there actually made it pretty interesting (My own opinion only). The aeroplane is an accident though.  The star field could have been better with a darker sky. I was expecting to get some photos of the milky way and of course it is too bright for it, nor do i know the location. What a shame i can’t recognise any constellation that appears at this time of the year anymore. The only one i can recognise is Pegasus and that doesn’t help much.

Apart from taking star field and star trails photos, another things that i have tried is this time lapse video, something that is very popular these days.

Sort of retouching some landscape photos taken 6 years ago and realised the city has changed quite a bit.
