Pointing North! This is a small lighthouse or actually only a light without the house... I decided to climb on it and try to capture Polaris. Literally capture it! To be more precise I didn't touch the actual star as it is about 434 light years from here. I just aligned myself between the star and the camera. Polaris is the brightest star of Ursa Minor constellation. It is close to the north celestial pole, less than one degree away, making it the northern pole star. Due to the Earth's rotation, if you point the camera towards Polaris and take a long exposure of at least a few minutes (or better stack a series of shorter exposures) you will notice a pattern of concentric circles.
