These are some test clips combining some night-sky timelapses with StarStax software. It's super easy to use, including manual settings for "comet trails" of various lengths, as well as exposure adjustments. It's a great little tool to help spice up a production. Like anything, I'm sure you can overuse it. Next test for me: how will this work with other subjects, like a backlit snowflake, carbonated water, cityscapes.... We'll see.
