NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S @ 85 mm, 5 sec at f/1.8, ISO 400

It’s 5:30AM, and the end of my early morning star trails sequence. Astronomical twilight is also just about to end. Sunrise itself is still just a bit over an hour away. However you can already see the reddy pink glow on the horizon (even with the naked eye). The sun would rise just to the right of this frame

I figured it was already getting too bright for my star trails frames so I stopped the camera and started packing up. However in hindsight (and having looked at the exposures in Lightroom) I should have left it running for a little while longer

Ah well the stacked star trails will be what they will be 🙂

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.
