This photo was taken from an achored sailing boat. I was curious if any stars woud have been recognisable in a long exposure photo, because of the boat's continuous motion due to waves, plus the Earth's rotation. The result is funny, but I think interesting too. The only sharp object is the mast with it's shrouds and the brightest object is Jupiter. The detail shows how a „cocoon“ image has been created by a wobbling source. The Universe is beautifull in anyway!
