This tutorial covers my complete startrails processing workflow, starting out with 760 RAW images straight out of the camera and combining them into a single finished startrail image (below).
It covers cleaning and stacking the images, applying the ‘comet fade’ effect to the trails, blending the stacked star images with a twilight foreground image, colour processing and finishing touches.
Photoshop CC/CS is required, Tony Kuyper’s TK Actions Panel is recommended.

The tutorial is recorded on a Windows PC, if you are a Mac user substitute the Control and Alt keys for Command and Option.
I don’t include my RAW images due to the download size (36GB), but if you would like to work on 3000px wide JPG versions or just examine the camera settings I used a download link is included in the confirmation email.
