That's awesome, what were your settings and what script did you use?
Im very impressed! I've only began to try these myself recently so hopefully with the nights getting darker I'll be out more often, thanks for sharing the settings, I'll try those out
Sounds interesting, i was in Canada over the summer and there were some crazy lightning storms, unfortunately i hadn't read up on lightning shots before i went! The cartrails during daylight would be good, an nd filter would help im sure
Time to pump up this thread. I am new to CHDK and this my first post but an old hand programmer and expect to have a ball here. Here are my first 2 tries at star trails. Its a blast. Many thanks to all the devs who produced this. First shot with Canon A560 and mere 5 sec jpg, about 400. Second with Elph300 and 15sec exposure till cold killed battery at 220 frames.
Picked up an A1200 while on vacation about two weeks ago and put CHDK on it the same day Was itching to try some star trails but my "vacation" was in Cleveland Ohio visiting my parents so I didn't bother trying any star trails. Now I'm back home in Yuma AZ and while I'm really itching to get out into the desert for some good dark skies figured I'd give it a quick try from my backyard first.Pretty happy with the results! I think I had the overrides set to give a 20 second exposure, though I'm still not totally clear on how to work CHDK so I may have been off on that. I also accidentally left RAW files on which I thought I had disabled so that probably helped eat my batteries a little quicker. Still I was about to get 70 frames off of an almost fresh set of Lithium AA's over about 36 minutes before the batteries were toast.I did turn off DFS but neglected to shoot any dark frames to use in post. Just stacked them with a free startrails program I found with a quick google search and then a quick levels adjustment in photoshop to tweak the exposure.Need to pickup some new NiMH's or rig an external power source soon since desert camping season will be starting soon and I'll have some REAL dark skies to work with!
