I have seen the amazing posts of the night sky taken with a wide angle lens and time laps of approx. 1/2 hr.

I am looking for specific advise. I am going to Maine in September. Bar Harbour is hosting a night sky festival and I want to use my D300 and my 10-24 nikon lens to attempt night sky shots.

Max F/ is 3.5. It seems that many of the best shots are at F/2.8 and 30 seconds. I could use some advise with using my particular combo.

I have a good tripod and cable release.

I think I understand that there is a method of staking several short time exposures but do not have a clear understanding of how.

Thanks much for the assistance. John
