I'm always amazed at how big our universe is. God did a nice job.

No problem - I used a tokina 11-16 2.8. I cranked the ISO up to 6400 and opened the aperture up all the way to 2.8. Exposure was 25 seconds. I wanted to get as much light as possible in without obvious trails. I read somewhere that 30 seconds is about as long as you want to go before your stars start to look oblong.

This page (external link) gives the low down on different timings for different focal lengths and the formula to work it out. The formula works in mm (or microns), so you need to know the pixel width of your body's sensor.
