Startrail formed from my 1215 x 15 second frames whilst trying to image for Perseids. Static tripod, dew bands on lens, left running overnight, just under 5.5 hours worth of data. Stacked in Startrails.de software <http://www.startrails.de/>. The bright orange star to the right of the building (lower right) is Betelgeuse.

Great star trails James, if you stare at it long enough it looks like one of those worm holes in Science fiction!
