Here is a basic "how to" regarding digital timelapse...
Shooting night stuff just means longer exposure, plus it is mandatory to use actual "shoot-move-shoot" moco motors, rather than continuous-motion motors like a modified telescope head, which you can get away with for daytime shooting.
In terms of exposure, it's really not that hard. On a camera like the Canon 350D, a typical full moon exposure would be something like this:
25 sec exposure
The sky and foreground always tend to stay in balance in the moonlight. For dark sky shooting, it's a litter trickier.

The Spot is on my site. (if you don't see a Sunrise in the upper left corner of the demo reel page click 'refresh') The Spot was shot on Vivid 160.
Tom, this is why I have not (yet) seen In The Mood... was busy sitting around listening to my Camera take 15 second exposures... etc...
