    Nice job, Steve. I picked up your work on FM. Stunning shot from Z Point!
    Looking forward to using your technique. I’m a Canon guy, so I hope the continuous shooting mode, with locked down cable release will work for me. Up ’til now, I’ve used an intervalometer, but that limits out a 99 shots. I like your idea better, if I can make it work.

    Thank you for this excellent piece of instruction. I remember trying star trails back in the old days of film. I also remember them not turning out very well and pretty much put doing trails out of my mind. With your instruction, I am encouraged to go out and tackle some trails in some choice locations here in Montana.
