@melissachi @luvthyclassics @laurinovakphoto @kmwilliams @harley84 Thank you all for the comments and fav's... I really appreciate them.

@paulremulla @shutterbugger For Paul and Jenn: My two main source for info on this technique came from this guide: http://www.fotografonocturno.com/js.pdf (it's in English) It's got great tips on how to expose and compose for stars in general and star trails in particular. It also has a tutorial at the end for stacking your star trail shots in Photoshop, but I used a freeware program called, conveniently enough, "Startrails", which you can download from here: http://www.startrails.de/html/software.html (it is extremely, extremely easy to use, but if you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them).
