Planet  Trails

(Move your mouse over the image to see the labels)

     While the star trails outnumber the planet trails in this image, there are more of the latter than in most "trails" photos! Move your mouse over the image to see the labels. The image was made on the evening of 5 May 2002, using Konica Centuria 800 film and a Nikkor 24-50 mm zoom lens at 24 mm focal length and f14. Exposure was 3 hours. (I had been using this fast film for "snap shots" of the planets and so had to stop down to a very small aperture for this long exposure.) I didn't erase the airplane; I think it adds a bit of reality to the scene.
