This is another shot from my night at the Stellisee (close to the Matterhorn).

It is composed of 95 pictures (exposure is 30 sec, 5 sec of break for my poor camera between every shot) that I used for a short time-lapse sequence. These images were merged in Photoshop with the layer-option "Lighten" and the opacity of each layer was varied between 99% and 5% to create the tail look. The very first image was increased in exposure to show also a few darker stars without tail.
