135/365  SAS Q135/365 SAS Q

 

Night 135
SAS building Q is under construction. Will reach full height next month, then the big cranes will come down.
Caught one shooting star?

 

Photo info:  Stacked 44 images in Photoshop.  Total time for the image is 44 minutes.  Each photo is 59 sec, and 1 sec between photos. Long exposure noise reduction was turned off to get near continuous capture. 
ISO 400,  f/11, 17mm. 

Lessons learned:  Stacking works well... but next time, I'm going for a single 60 minute exposure! (Dual batteries in the grip should get me through it)  Should I use long exposure noise reduction with the 60 minute shot?

There is too much light pollution over Raleigh!  I did decide to shoot this at a time there was moon light, because I wanted some light on the building and cranes.  Moon was a less than quarter crescent well to the west of this orientation.

 

Update:

PS  Here is a Time lapse of the SAS Q photos.

I've used other software for time lapse, but haven't used QuickTime Pro. I may just have to give it a try.
Thanks Mike.

Yes...leave noise reduction ON for the single 60 minute exposure. If I were going to shoot 3-60 second exposures I would turn the noise reduction OFF as you did. Have you thought of doing a time lapse with all of the 59 second exposures in QuickTime Pro Like Mark, Joe and I do? It is pretty easy to do.
