When I first purchased my DSLR, one of the pictures that I truly looked forward to trying to capture was the stars rotation in the nighttime sky. I took some time at some of my favorite photo sharing sites and got some ideas on how to take the pictures. The dilemma with taking these pictures is the time that required for them. You invest so much time before you know what the end result could be. Add in needing a clear sky and minimal light sources and that make its even tougher. After a few tries I finally nailed this picture.

Star Trail photograph with Polaris
The star in the middle of the rotation is Polaris, or the North Star and stays virtually motionless in the nighttime sky. Now that I have got my feet wet I am really looking forward to get a little more creative with this photo style.

Thank you for sharing!
