Here is one from myself. This is the first time I have tried something like this. This is from a 17-40mm at F4 single exposure. Any comments or tips would be greatly appreciated.

This was taking in the Rustenburg area in South Africa.

Most of my stuff is shot with:

5D2
24L II
16-35 II
Gitzo 3531
Acratech GV2
Canon RC=1 Remote or Bowen Intervalometer


These types of shots are all about getting as much light on the sensor as quickly as possible. Large aperture, high ISO, 30 sec or less exposures.

It depends. Maybe on a 1DX I'd find 6400 to be acceptable. I don't like going that high on my 5D2, personally, if I can help it.

This is where a fast lens will help too, as you lower your ISO a bit.

My pic was taken with the 5DII, 17-40 at 17mm, 30 seconds wide open at ISO 6400.

I have noticed, that best results you can get when F2.8 or more wide open, iso3200, and no more than 30s. You can use stacking for better result, but the there is more work in postprocessing.
