I have a Canon D5 III. Is it safe to leave it on for 1 hour to take star trails? convergingpixels

No problem there, but I suggest you try using stacking techniques instead. It's better in term of noise.

Thank you for your help.

 

I was going to take 12 images, each 4 minutes long @ f/4 w/100 iso using my timer.  Then I will stack these RAW images

converted to PSD files using Photoshop's Statistics script.

 

But I also wanted to try leaving the camera on for ~ 1 hr. using f/4 w/iso 100.  I will use my 24-70 mm lens @ 24mm.

I'll be doing this @Glacier Pt., yosemite, hopefully w/ Half Dome in the fore ground.

 

Thanks again.

 

 

If you get anything good then by all means post up some pics.  I'd love to see your Yosemite pictures.

Sure will !!!
