Clouds muck up first real star circle attempt from my Indiana location

271 images stacked, each at ISO 400 for 15 sec

I had my point and shoot set up on a mini tripod on my balcony overnight. I retrieved the camera around 3:50am with a dead battery, so I think 271 is about all the pics I can take back to back.

I noticed that from the NW I get quite a few planes coming presumably from Chicago toward Indy and beyond. On a clear night, maybe a little earlier, I'd like to get some air traffic stacked in with these long exposures. Then again, it's almost the shortest night of the year, so there probably isn't as much traffic that late at night.
