This beautiful view of star trails was captured by Gerlos on Flickr, as seen in the skies over Petralia, Sottana, Sicily, Italy on June 16, 2012. Gerlos said the image is a “composition of 363 shots (+10 dark frames) taken for 25 seconds every 30 seconds between 1:55 and 4:23 at f / 4 and ISO 1600 with Canon 550D, EF-S 18-55 lens + extra wide field Opteka 0.45 HD². Images acquired using the function of the interval Magic Lantern and made using StarStax.

    Just a small linguistic comment: the correct translation of “cerchi di stelle” is “rings of stars”.
