I've been wanting to try this for ages, but never seem to have the right conditions. I've been wanting to do a few experimental test shots, to get an idea of camera settings and exposure.

I just need a campsite that is.
#1… Quiet and isolated, so I can leave my camera out all night without it disappearing.
#2… A nice clean view of the northern sky.
#3… Very little light pollution. (this ruled out the three months I spent in California)
#4… No moon.

Finally got all four of those, and I've been playing with this every night this week.

This is actually a bunch of 10 minute exposures, all blended manually in Photoshop.
