Another day on the image-processing train here in Trumansburg, New York. This summer while working for Outward Bound in the High Sierra Nevada, I made many images of the night sky. Now I've got the time and the computing power to turn those individual exposures into a composite image to show the path of the stars as the earth rotates. I'm using StarStax, a quality and free program to create the piece you see here. Some of the locations of these images are more than 30km on trails from any roads. Enjoy a glimpse of the John Muir and Ansel Adams Wilderness!
