Back Deck Fisheye Star Trails Part Deux

Day One Hundred and Fourteen. This was really a double experiment. For the methodology, I set the camera into continuous shooting mode with a constant shutter speed of 30 seconds and used the remote shutter release instead of the intervalometer to capture the sequence. For the camera settings, I stopped down to f/8 instead of shooting wide open. I'd been noticing that star trails images shot wide open seemed a bit busy, and stopping down removes stars since not as much light is gathered for each exposure. I noticed that the time between shots seemed to be shorter than when shot with the intervalometer, but for some unknown reason Nikon decided that the most pictures anyone would ever want to shoot in a row in continuous mode is only 100, so for my purposes, it's almost completely unusable. Oh well, the intervalometer works just fine :)
