Astrotracer question

I wonder whether anyone has experience with this: Does the astrotracer blur objects in the foreground of the image if it moves the sensor to trace the stars?

Yes it does. However, this can result in a cool effect and a usable foreground. Alternatively, you can simply stack 2 shots.

A typical example of foreground blur as shot by 15mm Ltd.

like adam said, the usual technique for combining fg and bg objects is to shoot one frame with astrotracer then one with it turned off and blend.

have fun!
