Stars over Goulais Point by tfavretto Stars over Goulais Point by tfavretto
Another star trail photo from that night out at my camp at Goulais Point, located roughly 50 km northwest of Sault Ste. Marie, ON. This one is a 37 minute exposure. The longer exposure resulted in a great deal of noise/hot pixels that had to be filtered out, but I did my best to clean it up.

Blimey well the work paid off for sure, but I was keen to try a shot like this but now I'm not sure.

Guess 37mins is pushing the limits a little.

By stacking you mean putting shots on top of each other yes? Sounds like a plan.

Yeah, an exposure this long might work better with film, but I've yet to try it. And stacking 30 second exposures seems like a much better technique, I plan on trying it next time I attempt a shot like this.

So beautiful, love how the longer startrails create the impression of a rotating disc. What causes that green glow in the sky?
Reply
:icontfavretto:
tfavretto Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2008
Thanks. And I'm pretty sure that is some faint aurora borealis. You can pretty much always pick up that faint glow at night around here with a long enough exposure, even though it's far too dim to see with your eyes.

looks great, had a look at your original and you're right, very noisy, but the result looks really clean! any tips on noise reduction?

but anyway very original picture, will definitely :+fav:

tfavretto Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2008
Thank you, and thanks for the :+fav:. Noise reduction was tough with this one. Desaturating the red and blue channels helped get rid of the red & blue hot pixels, but i had to zoom in & clone the rest of them out manually. I also had to filter it a couple times using Neat Image. I'll definitely be stacking 30-second exposures next time I shoot star trails instead of doing it this way.

Without the star trails, the picture has a really gloomy atmosphere, with the green sky and shadows. =D
