Astrophotography



Jerry Lodriguss has taken some of the most amazing images I have ever seen of the night sky. Due to the length of exposure and the rotation of the planet, he has to use a motorized mounting that is tracking the stars, otherwise they come out blurred. It really gives you an idea of the movement of earth and the stars through space. I never realised that space was quite so full before either. Check out more here..

Circumpolar star trails seem to rotate around the North Celestial Pole due to the rotation of the Earth on its axis.
