Stacking Stars

You may ask… What’s Staking Stars? Well…It’s an astronomy term used to combine multiple images with most ‘good’ image editing software, the one I used was Photoshop, using the Script setting and selecting ‘Load Files into Stack’ and applying the Maximum filter.

I have to say it wasn’t my intention to do this, as I was trying to capture the Asteroid 2012 da14 as it graced through the constellation Ursa Major over my house, alas I didn’t see it with any of my equipment but instead managed to capture this wonderful star trail above which I then converted into the stacked Animated GIF below using Fireworks.
