I've been dreaming of taking some star photos in a dramatic setting. On every one of our summer trips, the nights were interrupted by clouds streaming across the sky and obscuring the stars.
One day last November, I had a perfect night in the desert. There was no moon, and it was perfectly clear. I managed to take time lapse photos of the stars for many hours.
Look how many stars there were and what long trails they made over the course of the night.
