Do I need a cable release if I already have remote shutter release?

Hello all,

Do I need a cable release if I already have remote shutter release?  I ask this question b/c next week I will be in a desert where I'd like to do astrophotography (I've never done it).

I was going to approach it the same way I do light streaks (an example of mine below).  When I do that, I don't even use the remote actually.  I just change the shutter speed.  So do I need the cable release or will the remote shutter do the same thing?
