Star trails
Fig. 16: Trails of stars above trees and mountains. I set the white balance to 3000K because then the night sky appears blue, which is not scientifically correct but looks more natural ;-) If the white balance is set to sunglight then the night sky appears brown. I recommend using NEF for all night scenes or under illumination circumstances which are unclear. — Nikon D200, Nikkor AF-S 28-70mm, f=28mm, f/2.8, 480s, ISO 200, white balance 3000K, Glaubenbergpass, 22.
