My star trail images are made by taking a time exposure of about 10 to 15 minutes. However, with modern digital cameras, 30 seconds is about the longest exposure possible, due to electronic detector noise effectively snowing out the image. To achieve the longer exposures I do what many amateur astronomers do. I take multiple 30-second exposures, then ‘stack’ them using imaging software, thus producing the longer exposure.—Don Pettit

Since 2005, NYC SALT has been working with inner-city teenagers in Manhattan to help them discover, nurture and develop their story-telling abilities through the lens of a camera. They’ve just launched an online store with 100% of print sales going directly to supporting the program. Print sales pay for camera equipment, field trips, and summer camp for the students.
