With some time on my hands, I finally have an opportunity to process some long neglected data.
In this instance, I decided to use the "Live Composite" function on my Olympus OMD-EM5 MkII. In this mode, the camera takes a continuous series of images with the same exposure time, but only the initial image is used to record the ambient light. After that, only the brighter pixels of the subsequent images are used.
This has the advantage of ensuring no areas of the image overexpose.
As this image shows, the downside are that 1) the movement of the trees in a reasonably strong breeze was also captured, 2) there is a short processing time between exposures which leads to an "aliasing" effect of the star trail and 3) the individual exposures are not stored, so there is no opportunity to take an alternate processing approach.
Still, by managing the image scale, the artefacts are minimised and, after all, it's more about the experience and the memory. :)
You are on a Free account, and when you delete an image, your upload counter does not decrease (unless the image is deleted within 24 hours of uploading it). The Free account is not a way to keep your most recent or best 10 images on AstroBin, but a trial period for you to decide whether or not a paid subscription is worth it.

The image will be permanently deleted and cannot be recovered. All its revisions will be deleted too. Are you sure?
