A program has been made that does all the work for you.

It's called StarTrails.exe.

It can be found here: [link]

Hi there. Beautiful shot. Was this taken on digital or film? The camera details doesn't show. If it was with digital, how did you deal with the noise usually associated with these long exposures?

I love star trail photos, I havent't got around to sitting outside all night though trying to get a decent shot, this sort of photo really shows dedication to your work. Good work
