    Wow, I always want to shoot pictures like these! Too bad the city lights pollution is heavy in my town.

    I have a really good camera and I want to take some long exposure photos of the sky without getting star trails. I know I have to mount the camera to a device that will track the sky as the Earth rotates. Some higher-end telescopes have this device but I don't need a telescope, I just need the tracking device.

    Great star trails, did you use one long exposure for each one or a few shorter ones and then stack them. I have read both can be done but wondered which would give the better results.
