StarStax ~ Polaris

 (© StartPoint Media, Inc.)

Mid-November brings the Leonids Meteor Shower. I photographed the impeding meteors using an intervalometer. It was a great idea and it would have worked except the meteors never really showed up astronomically speaking. So what to do with the collection of frames? I tried out StarStax to create this composite image of Polaris. The software also does progressive saving which creates cumulative star trail images as a time lapse which can be created easily for video applications.

For comparison, you can check out the footage as a regular time lapse here.
