Startrails : Trial 2
Did another attempt. This time, instead of standing in the cold, I am dwiddling with the interval shooting of the K-7. It was rather confusing with the interval settings in the beginning. After the first 45 minutes was done, I finally realized that with the camera at M, and if you have dialed in a shutter speed of 25 seconds, your interval timer setting has to be longer than that, say 30s. What it meant was to tell the camera to take a shot with an exposure of 25s every 30s. Makes sense. And with my second set of interval, I finally managed to get the 99 shots. This trail was around 90 minutes. I kinda offset the building structure of hopes in capturing the north star, however, I still need to point the camera a little higher up. That will be the next time around.
