Alèdua (control) Tower

5/5 - (1 vote)

After a few days dating and canceling the appointment at the last minute after a broken clutch and an awkward exit to the “pinets” finally we have the startrails that we wanted from Aledua Tower. As the title says, it seemed like an airport, with all this light up and down. The truth is that it is a place very close and we did not visit very often (we’ll repeat, and Sergio will have also his startrails).

As for making, it’s a startrails with 180 shots, for 30” and with 1” between shots (in one stripe plane can be seen):

  • Aperture: ƒ/4
  • Camera: Canon EOS 7D
  • Focal length: 12mm
  • ISO: 320
  • Location: 39° 17.7973′ 0″ N 0° 33.6863′ 0″ W
  • Shutter speed: 29s

The later edition was with Lightroom, adjusting levels and temperature, and then tried stacking with Gimp, but change the layer to “lighten only” one by one was a bit tedious and by professional deformation I thought that someone would have already found with this problem, so I searched a bit and found this script ( that solved my problem, belongs to a post that you can see here on how to startrails with linux.

Some (the few who dare to comment on the blog), will have seen that now must login in order to comment. It was imperative, they were owning me with Spam, sorry.

As for the tune, and after a couple of scares we’ve had this week I want a song that always makes me go on, which for me is a celebration of life and we always have to play “kick and forth”
