StarStaX Comet Mode for Drop Shaped Star Trails

I just upgraded my StarStaX software (free by the way), and noticed some new features! Here are two examples of the "Comet Mode" that fades older frames to make the trails into long teardrops or comet shapes.

Yep, it's as easy as checking a box! 167 frames
regular star trails
You can also save images at each step to create timelapse movies with hundreds of tiny comets soaring across the sky
