I’ve tried processing my star trail shots from Morocco, and the results are better than I expected. The above is from my first night in the Erg Chebbi. With a full moon the foreground is perhaps a bit overexposed, but otherwise this has worked quite well. I was slightly off on my aim, but at least I got the pole star (just) in shot!
