Over Arching Stars

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect night of stars out at Double Arch.  It was a cloudless night with a small moon and plenty of stars overhead as an accent to the arches.  I zoomed in on the large arch at Double Arch and then did a series of 43 – 30 second exposures for the purpose of stacking them to show the star trails overhead. As you can tell from the image I even caught a few shooting star, plane and satellite streaking across the night sky during the exposures.
