Sun Dog, Star Trails, and a Globular Cluster
Please click to enlarge.
This post is the first of two which will consist of rescuing from oblivion some of the images that I’ve taken in the past but for whatever reason did not include in a post. These four are from 2017-2019.
Both star trail images were taken with my Canon 60D. I always enjoyed taking star trails, provided I took care to keep the lens dew free.
They do help visualise the how the hourly motion of stars varies in different regions of the sky. I didn’t realise it was so long since I’d captured star trails, so look out for more to come!
Astronomers will sometimes invert images because it tends to bring out more detail in fuzzy looking objects. It works best with comet tails but also with other objects like this globular cluster. The original 47-Tucanae image can be seen > Here <
Thank you very much for looking.
