Hello all,
I own some property in upstate NY that is far away from light pollution and other light sources. It is so dark there at night that I can actually see the Milky Way without binoculars or any assistance, as well as countless numbers of stars.

I would like to capture some of this beauty, but I am not sure of the exact techniques, lenses, setup etc. Does anyone have some suggestions and ideas on the best methods for capturing the stars both still, and longer exposures with star movement ?
