on the complete other side of the sierra is fresno. But i doubt that it is big enough or close enough to put out that amount of light. In all the years ive lived there ive never seen city light come from behind those mountains.

Well, that could be what's causing it. I know in many of my star trail photos, I've picked up faint lights and aurora borealis that were too dim to even notice with the unaided eye. But if your photos weren't taken too long after sunset, it could also be traces of sunlight, as you suggested.

Why is everyone putting these black with white line borders on all their stuff, it seems a little cliche, you should come up with something original.

Beautiful shot. You don't see many of these in black and white, and this looks awesome.

Can the D70 do exposures that long? Mine always stops after 30 minutes in the bulb mode. How do you make it go longer?

you have to manually keep the shutter button held down. The remote will only let you do 30 but i sometimes use tape and a little screw to keep the shutter held down and you can expose for as long as your batteries will let you. :)

How do you do that without moving the camera? Or is the exposure so long that little bit of movement wont be seen?
