Great photo, Kris. With a ten minute exposure did you use a tracking mount?

Dave, I set the camera on a tripod. No tracking mount. The stars are little smeared. Tracking mount is tricky because it would keep the stars sharp but smear mountain edges. With the recent advances in sensors, I was thinking that for similar photos one could: 1. shoot long exposure at lower ISO to get the foreground (maybe even light paint), 2. shoot short exposure with high ISO (to get the sky), 3. merge the two in Photoshop.

Was it really 10 minutes? That looks like the sort of trails I see at around 1-2 minutes.
