My first star trails photo

Star trails

I feel great to be able to produce this photo. I only realized that stars move precisely in a circle 24 hours. ( i.e 15 degree for one hour). I set 30 sec per shot continuously for 2 hours, if you can measure the trails, it move 30 degree. How accurate! GOD creation is so wonderful!

I started to ask a question: the star trails really caused by earth rotates or Star move , earth is station?

I assume you are not serious with your last statement and you KNOW that it is the earth's rotation. But it is a great photo, well done

Cool! I have been wanting to try out star trails, but haven't gotten to it. How wide angle of a lens did you use?
