This is about 4 hours of photos taken from the balcony at Okaukuejo Rest Camp. The camera was pointed away from the flood lit waterhole but it was impossible to avoid the moving trees in the foreground.

This is a 1-hour star trail taken from the front of the Desert Homestead hut. This was my first attempt at star trail photography in Namibia and shows the value of pointing your camera at a pole star (see other 3 photos).

The dark skies of Namibia make this an ideal place for astrophotography. So glad I tried this out on this special trip.
