Backyard Autumn Night Sky in New Jersey: Star Trails Looking North.
The old deck had not been demolished yet, and I was able to set up a Nikon D3 camera and 16 mm f/2.8 fisheye lens looking north over the house. The first image is a composite of 158 images from the early morning hours. The second image is a composite of 190 images before midnight. Note the pesky alien stepping in to have its selfie taken.
