Photographer: Sean Huolihan
Settings: 390 Images, 30 sec exposures, ISO 200, 24-85mm @ 24mm, f/10
Backstory: I took this during my deployment to Afghanistan. I had been waiting months for the right nighttime visibility and had never seen a star trail image with a HIMARS launcher and just thought it would make an awesome shot. The final image was composed of 390 stacked photos. I am currently a SGT serving in the WI National Guard and working on becoming a full-time photographer.
