starring a 25 second exposure

Lake Superior

See how the lights in the photo look like stars?  I got the effect because I used a slow shutter speed.  This shot it a 25 second exposure.  The number of points the stars have depend upon how many glass elements the lens has. This type of photography does require a tripod.  The slightest camera shake really mucks up the shot. For this one I set the camera on a tripod and focused to infinity and then set it on “bulb” and pressed the shutter release for 25 seconds.  Why 25 seconds?  I dunno
