Wireless remote, bulb mode and dark sky
In reply to saraht6, Nov 16, 2012

I used a wireless remote and set the camera in bulb mode. You can easily take 900 second exposures then, or even longer.

As for the sky being dark, well it depends upon your location. I shot these from a remote village in the himalayas with little light pollution.

In city, you cannot imagine this!
