Absolutely love these. Haven't tried yet. Mind me asking your settings?

It's a lot of experimentation. I always use ISO 200. Fstop varies. I know the first one with the church was 8 sec exposures, while the others varied between 15-20 sec exposures. To get the full circular stars, I was out for approximately 45 minutes.

Also need to face North to get the circle. For the church I was facing East, which is why the star trails are fairly straight.

I'm still learning how to get the best results.

So bummed right now. Was at walt disney works tonight and wanted the castle with trails but the sky didn’t cooperate. Clear skies all day and then bang at 915 clouds appeared.

From what I understand you can get better results by compositing short exposures, but this is just a straight ~10 min exposure with auto darkframe subtraction.
