Star trails in the trailer park

Star trails in the trailer park - long exposure
Star trails in the trail­er park — long expo­sure

This pho­to­graph was tak­en in a trail­er park in Yuma, Ari­zona.

Canon TC-80N3 remote control

You can see that the stars in the sky have made trails as the earth moves rel­a­tive to them.

I kept the shut­ter of the cam­era open for a rel­a­tive­ly long peri­od (about 10 min­utes) using a Canon TC-80N3 remote con­trol. This unit has var­i­ous set­tings, such as self-timer, inter­val timer, long-expo­sure timer, and expo­sure-count. In this pho­to­graph I used long-expo­sure timer.

I also made a sequence of pho­tographs that I intend to turn into a time­lapse video soon.

If you have a cam­era such as a Canon 350D, 400D, 450D or 500D, you can get a con­ver­sion cable to use the Canon TC-80N3 here.
