The Last Bit.

South Polar Star Trails

Stars Spinning Around the South Pole!

This shot was taken on night two of the Mt. Kilimanjaro trek I took. IIRC it was about a fifteen minute exposure and it came out near perfect. There is no "South Star" as there is a North Star so there is no central star at the pole which is near the bottom of the shot and about a 1/3 of the way coming from left to the right. This shot is probably my best star trail shot. Nice dark sky with colorful stars arcing gracefully around the pole.

Good Night!
