Stars above Bryce Canyon in winter

Stars above Bryce Canyon in winter

This photo was taken from an overlook at Bryce Canyon, Utah, in February 2013. It was my first photo taken with a tracking mount. On this occasion I used a homemade barn-door tracker. The foreground tracking blur is somewhat hidden by the complexity of the scene. This is a single exposure with a Canon 350D, processed only for straightening and color balance. The focus is imperfect, and after this experience I decided to upgrade both my camera and tracking system to more sophisticated equipment.
