120 Format: Star Trail

Uploaded by: WurzelDave

Friday December 13, 2013

Fordgate, Somerset, United Kingdom

Caption: The lens on this Microcord is 77.5mm the settings f5.6 (100 ISO film), 25 minute exposure taken on 120 film which once it's finished has to be sent away for processing, which takes a while. As usual these (120 format) shots are for viewing & commenting only & not for AC consideration. The camera made in early 1950's. The positioning was guesswork as i could not see ANYTHING through the viewfinder, the orange light is from Taunton about 7 miles away the two bright stars (top) are bottom of Orion!

Indeed I can see the rest of Orion too! It's just that instead of stars, there are horizontal lines. And of course Sirius in the far left. Cool!

About WurzelDave


I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300, SX150 & SX40 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer! I also have a variety of film cameras (35mm, stereo, 110, 120 format) dating from 1940 upwards. Photos from these cameras will appear here from time to time
