Hi Rene,
the exposure time is 30 s at f/2.8, ISO1600. This is a composite using StarStaX, about 150 exposures.
Sorry for the dashed trails. This is because I cannot switch off the noise reduction for exposures over 1 s on the Leica SL. I think pretty much any other camera allows users to switch off noise reduction, the Leica SL does not. In other words, as much as I love the Leica SL, for long-time exposures of star trail the camera is essentially useless.

Is this lousy rain ever going to stop?

Hi mitresg, thanks. Shot in DNG and converted to jpeg off line. Have not figured out how to nail a shot in jpeg yet, DNG is a safer option for me.
It's the rainy season in Anhiu and can be pretty depressing I guess.
I thought this was an old lady, but now I am not sure any more; I guess we'll never know for sure.
Thanks for the comment!

Hi mitresg,
It's about 1m/3ft or so. The most difficult thing to get used to are the long minimum focus distances of Leica-M lenses.

Thanks for the kind words, n.w and mitresg.
N.W., this structure was build in 1894, I guess the Germans would not consider this a particularly old building.
