Depends on focal length, at 105mm even 10 seconds is too long. At 16mm (on FF) I don't usually go over 25 as trailing does become noticeable? Next time I will ask the stars to pause for a bit ;) :D

"A simple equation for maximum shutter time is 500/focal length (in 35mm terms)."

Ill repost my comment from Flickr because I think it warrants some reinforcement:

Nice one. This kind of photo reminds me that I need to be more creative and look "through the viewfinder" more than with my eyes, even when not doing photography. I like the choice and angle of the foreground fences because I might not have thought of it, or passed them by looking for something more interesting.

Thanks for your comment, I got used to stop at a place or object and see what I can get out, it helps improve our photographic eye rather than always look better elsewhere.

I have found that equation to be unreliable, at 16 mm, 31 second exposures get trails, that's why I cut down to 25" :)

Yeah I think there are several factors other than focal length, like where you are pointing the camera that affect it, I think that equation is more of a starting point, then you can adjust it from there.

I always have camera in: AI Servo, Continuous (6D is slow enough that you can get one shot control with quick press), back button auto-focus, and single focus point (point varies depending on compo). I use this setting almost always even though 75% of my shots are stills/landscapes.

Also, If I do happen to be shooting an event or sport, I will use the excellent high ISO performance of the 6D to my advantage. I will set the camera to Auto-ISO with a minimum shutter speed of, say, 1/250. Then I will set the Auto ISO range to between 200 and 12,500. I then place the camera in Aperture Priority and go to town. It doesn't matter how light conditions change as I move around or the event lighting changes, the camera will not take the shutter below 1/250 and will let the ISO 'float' around as needed below 12,500. I control only the Aperture and just keep my focus on hitting targets with the active focus point. It is fast and accurate and keeps me from fumbling around with the camera throughout the event. Keeper rates are awesome and all photos in-focus are usable in that range.

Thanks Luta! I've got to give this a try.
