Balcony Star Trails featuring Meade 285

Stack of 39 images, each at f/2.7, ISO 800, 6.2mm, 15 sec, taken with Canon PowerShot

I staged this photo to include my Meade 285 telescope as the subject matter, facing West toward Lyra setting over the building next door. It was one of the first really cold nights this winter, and I forgot how the cold messes with the tape holding down the shutter on my point and shoot camera. The tape loosened up and the camera stopped clicking after only 39 frames.
