Basically, this is my first attempt at a Startrail image, after some practice to get some suitable frames. I wanted to continue with wide field astrophotography, and seeing as the Milky Way season is over in this part of the globe, I thought I would give Startrails an attempt. This image is a composite. After the Startrail frames, I added a light painted foreground shot. By that time the moon was quite high and helped illuminate Indian Head Peak. I used a Samyang 24mm f1.4 at f/2.2, ISO 2000, 30sec for the Startrails, and f/8 ISO 800 30 sec for foreground shot. The Startrail frames were stacked in "StarStaX".
