In my planning for this photo I failed to consider 2 helicopters flying over the city photo bombing my composition. Rather than stop the shoot I let it finish so I could evaluate the outcome after stacking the individual images. After looking at the end result on the computer I decided to leave the stacked image as is, helicopter lights included. In order to control the number of visible star trails the aperture was set to f/7.1 on a D-500. The f/7.1 aperture helps to bring out star color while making the night sky less cluttered.
