Three Clear Nights

By Jake Mosher

The stars appear to revolve around the northern polar axis during three successive clear nights. By driving an iron bar into the ground, bolting a ball-head to it, and securely anchoring my camera, I was able to leave it in place while capturing more than 3000 40-second images over three nights. I was able to change the extended-life battery, wrap the lens in hand warmers, and bundle the camera in a down coat each night without changing the focal point.
