Welcome Kelly!
Checked your link and I love your star trails. Really love them!
What gear are you using in general for timelapses and for those lovely images of stars?

Thank you! For most of those shots I am using a Nikon D7100 and various wide angle lenses. I really like using the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 - it's sharp through the entire length. Usually my set-up is for 50-60 4 minute exposures - stacked in Photoshop. You can see a few more here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/soktober/sets/72157637829607034/

For time lapse, I'm using the D7100, the Tokina 11-16, Tokina 12-24, Nikon 35 prime, and/or (sometimes) the Nikon 70-300mm. For motion I've been using the DP Stage Zero.

I'm really glad this site is up and running. It looks great - and I am looking forward to being apart of the community. Tell everyone they've done a great job!

The Tokina 11-16mm lens is a great lens. I would love to buy it at some point!
Nice pictures you have on flickr.
Thanks for sharing the procedure with us. Maybe you can post at some point a step by step guide to share with everyone your way of achieving this really good result!
I love that you're enjoying the forum. It is up and running, but still in a test phase.
We're still testing a lot of things to get everything ready for the official launch and to be able to give everyone the best experience possible on this community!
