    Clifton Suspension Bridge Star Trails by doigal, on Flickr

    Star Trails over the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, England.

    I'd been waiting a while for a good clear night to try this, and finally late one sunday evening there was not a cloud to be seen in the nights sky.

    Stacked using 163 shots of 8s each in StarStaX, and then the bridge manually blended in from the first exposure to bring the brightness back down.

    Looks awesome mate. I think it is because the blend of the bridge with the star trails is really on point.

    This would look great as a B&W too I think :thumbup:

    Nice! Makes it look like an intergalactic space bridge.

    You must be completely the opposite direction of the SCP to get such straight star trails

    It's actually pointing pretty close to south (northern hemisphere). The city is on the northern side so can't shoot that way, and the other side is less accessible anyway.
