No they are not single shots. Exposure for sky using tracker and exposure for the foreground without tracker and a lot of photoshop work. Correct me if I am wrong Eric.

Simply amazing images but by no means straight outa camera.

Probably my favorite MW image to date, partially due to the planning that went into it, and the time it took to finally be able to hit the shutter button to take the image.

Two images, one for the sky at 20 Seconds, ISO 3200 f/2.8, and one for the foreground at 2 minutes, ISO 1600 F/2.8.

This is correct, I set up the tracking mount/tripod and take my sky exposures with the mount on, then turn the mount off and take the foreground exposures. I blend the two later on in post processing, trees are a real PITA in the tracked sky shots, it's hard to mask the blurry trees behind the corresponding sharp trees in the foreground.

Could you not use content aware fill on the background?

masking the trees was the real PITA on the Sparks Lane shot I did...my first edit was easier, since I just used one MW image, I have since been trying to stack the MW pictures to get better NR, but the movement is making the edit a real pain, with not a lot of gain.

<tuffty/>

I haven't had much success with the content aware fill, more often than not it fills in the blurred trees with sky that doesn't match well with the local background sky and just looks funny when the sky is mask/blended with the sharp foreground shot. I've had more lucky with slightly scaling the sky once the blurry trees are aligned with the sharp trees, then warping a little more, then clone stamping out the remaining blurry edges that are visible. It's an insanely tedious process no matter what.

It could be worse, you could suck at photoshop as much as I do.
