This is a composite of a time lapse I took a couple nights ago of us camping in the yard. This image is made up of 225 photos, each 30 seconds long, taken in 5 second intervals, for an overall combined exposure of 112.5 minutes. I masked out parts of each image that I didnít want and stacked them with the maximum stack mode in Photoshop to get only the brightest parts of each image. Most of the images were taken with an aperture of f/7.1 and an ISO of 400. To get the stars brighter at the very end of the time lapse I slowly increased the aperture to f/5.6, f/4, and finally f/2.8 for a few frames after the fire had died down and Iíd turned off the lantern. This is what makes the point brighter than the trails behind the stars.
