Playing with star trails and light polluted skies from the terrace. I'm looking to the north, right towards Zürich, Switzerland. The lake is out of frame (along with the neighbour's house and town...)

 

The moon just set behind the ridge to my left (although it was still lighting the sky), and we now live in a metro area with 1.4 million people - so I haven't gotten out much under the stars. I also set the 6dMk2 to record M sized RAW files, something I hadn't done before, in order to save some time stacking and processing for this test.

 

This does give me hope that if I get a bit out of town and into the mountains I might be able to dust off my tracker and get back into astro-landscape work.
