360 Degree Startrails Panorama

By: György Soponyai


Tarján, Hungary

2014 July 24-26


From the photographer: "The annual astro-camp of Hungarian Astronomical Association was held last weekend in Gerecse Mountain near Tarján (~40km from Budapest). During these three nights I took the opportunity to accomplish my long-planned all sky startrail panorama photo with the hope that the light of observing lamps could produce a cool and intimate foreground of the scene. I was very lucky with the weather: only the first night was partially cloudy so I took 106 minutes of exposure (53 x 2 min) turning the camera to different directions every night. On the Western horizon some light pollution of Tatabánya is clearly visible."
