The return to the dark sky - a circumpolar star trail

Posted by marion165

This circumpolar star trail image was made of seventy 30 second exposures taken with a Canon T6s and a Canon 8-15 mm f/4L lens. (ISO 3200, 12 mm f/4.0). I took the image in the dark skies of Fowlers Hollow State Park in Central Pennsylvania. The glow from my camp fire can be seen to the right of the photo. It was great to see the Milky Way in its full glory again!
