Why it’s a fail trail

fail trail detail

On Sunday, I posted a photo I titled “fail trail.” I called it that because I only captured half the light I intended due to a setting on my camera; one that had the camera capturing 30 seconds of blackness for every 30 seconds of stars. In the detail image you see here, the photo shows what I’m talking about. At full resolution, the stars are spaced out, and the 30 seconds leaves a gap where the earth rotated while the camera wasn’t capturing the image.
