MOONRISE SEQUENCE AND MOON TRAIL




I had shot a sequence of the rising moon during Leonids 2011 to make a time-lapse movie. I captured 65 images and then made a time-lapse movie using the Picasa Image Editor. At that time I had no idea how to create a star trail. I loved to see images of star trails by other astrophotographers but never attempted to learn how to create them.  Yesterday I downloaded software called “Star Trails Version 1.1” for a free and tried for the first time to create star trails. I had not any sequence of images taken earlier except the one I shot the rising moon during Leonids. After using it and creating different images I found the software is very easy to use. I made a sequence of the rising moon and also a moon trail!
