Mekutotokuchiri: Wow, I'd get a ton of ISO noise with my 7D at that exposure length. Still, stunning capture!

Thanks.

To answer the other question. I used a tripod that was electronically set to move at the speed of the rotating earth, so for 500 odd seconds, the camera and the earth moves at the same speed in the same direction which ensures the photograph is sharp. Otherwise, the stars will appear as streaks.

Not sure if anyone answered your question. I just saw the comments. I used the remote which basically opens the shutter on the first press and releases the shutter on teh second press. So you can expose it to however long you want by just not pressing it for the second time. Hope this helps.
