Capturing star trails can be a lengthy process but the end result is definitely worth it. How is it done? Well, it’s done when the line of light which is recorded on a photographic medium and a time exposure is made of a star in the night time sky and using a camera on a fixed mount, and the trails are caused by the rotation of the earth during the period of time when the camera’s shutter is held open.
