I love these pics.

One thing I don't understand is how do you work out how long to leave the shutter open in bulb mode?

Thanks George!

Night shots follow the same exposure requirements as all photo's which is a balance of shutter speed, aperture and ISO. What I usually do is open my lens as far as possible, crank my ISO up to it's limit (25K on my camera) and take a 2 sec exposure. With the high ISO, I can shoot short exposure shots which allows me to set up my comp and focus quickly and dial in the proper exposure for those settings by adjusting the shutter speed. Once everything is set I adjust the shutter back to 30 sec's counting how many stops of light and then adjust down the ISO the same amount. From there you're in the ballpark and can tweak as necessary. The best thing to do is get out and play.

Some of mine from a while back. It was taken in Ocotillo, California. Nothing spectacular, but it was shot to be a timelapse from the beginning, rather than an individual image. Btw great shots in this thread!

Also made a timelapse movie of the shots:
