I’ve tried a taking star pictures with my camera a couple of times before, with limited success. Tonight I decided to try to combine the two previous methods – overlaying a bunch of long exposures. The results are still kind of iffy. Below is 2.5 minutes of shuttertime for Orion, very slightly cleaned and screened together in photoshop. I think my favorite thing about it is the way the stars are moderately sharp, but the trees are so ghostly.
