that is exactly how i intend to go about this ... 20 ~ 30 second
exposures untill i run out of space on a 4Gb CF card .. and
stacking the good ones ...

excellent idea.. thank you very much ...

The problem you may run into is that if you are using a wide angle lens, then you may have some cuvature in the field of view. Then straight stacking may not give you satisfactory results. Experiment with the lens and camera you choose to use - before the actual date.
