Would like to give my vote of thanks to Dr Soria for his instructive article and stunning photography. It truly is beautiful work from some amazing places. I have recently completed a trip through the Australian outback where I did a fair amount of landscape photography including star trails. Typically 2 hour exposures on a Canon 5D mk II. These of course were taken after dark, usually included the south celestial pole, and I illuminated the foreground elements using flashlights. I wish I'd read this article before I left to add another dimension to my images.

Thanks again for sharing your beautiful photographs.

Interesting grist for the mill.

I will be in the Kimberleys (in Western Australia) for five weeks from the end of August.
A great place for landscape astrophotography due to the remote nature of the place.
I already had some ideas about locations and compositions, hopefully with this advice I can fine-tune the technical side, and maybe even get some really good images as a result.

Indeed a very nice article, with superb photos and tips. When I was living in Oman, it was a lot easier to get really dark skies and no light polution, either in the mountains or the deserts. Here in Portugal, it is not so easy, but I will no doubt give it a try one of these days.

But it was more fun with slide film, kind of more unpredictable results, with typical exposures of 4-6 hours! I have just included one of my experiments from Oman, nothing special.
