Astrophotography requires tons of planning as well as truly testing your patience. Weather conditions at night are most times far more intense and being isolated out in the elements demands dedication to the craft. The best looking star trail photographs consist of a minimum exposure of two hours. Furthermore, many frames are taken over a period of time, resulting in extra wear and tear on your camera, resulting in a shorter lifespan. Cars are measured in miles while cameras are measured by clicks. One star trail photo may contain anywhere from 150-600+ clicks.
