[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was one of my first experiments with night photography. I had unintentionally aligned the lens with the north star thus creating this effect.

The north star appears to be stationary because it is aligned with the axis of rotation of the earth.

Hi Rajib,
Beautiful night photography, the one I really love to try. I am glad if you can share us the basic technique for a shot like this.


Nice work Rajib, Can you tell us how long the exposure was for?

Great Pic! I love the start trail effect. TFS!
