Star trails above the 100 years old Swedish storehouse

Shooting for the stars
Star trails above the 100 years old storehouse in Töcksfors with the autumn colours in the trees on the sides.
I thought our more than 100 years old storehouse (the so called “Stabburet”) in the garden, would make a nice foreground with the autumn trees on the sides, for an evening of star trail photographing.
Unfortunately the session was abrupted by a thin cloud cover and later thick low hanging fogg – so the total planned exposure time was more than halved to an actual total of just over 1:30 hours…
The small gaps in the lines are due to me trying out various camera settings before setteling on first 8 x 5 min at ISO 320 and later 27 x 2 min at ISO 800 (all are shot at 24 mm and f/4).
The place is nice a dark at Bortle 4 (or 1.44 watt per steradian per square metre) and is 6 km outside of Töcksfors in Sweden.
All 34 subs was taken on 18 October 2018 between 21:30 and 23:10 with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Canon EF 24-70mm 1:4 L IS USM lense.
