D5000 - Need 1 hour exposure

I've always been a fan of long exposures and just graduated to the D5000 from a crappy little Canon Powershot. I assumed (incorrectly) that a DSLR would have a much higher exposure time. I was disappointed to find that I was limited to 30 seconds. After some research, It seems that even with the ML-L3 Wireless Remote, my maximum exposure is 30 minutes. However, I saw a picture on Flickr, taken by a guy who claimed to have taken a star trail pic at a 1 hour exposure with the D5000. I can't contact him directly, and this forum seems to be full of knowledgeable people, so I thought I'd see if anyone here could help me out. Thanks!
