Does any one have experience and therefore advice on shooting night skies? We plan to shoot 35mm 435 es with an intervalometer to capture starscapes for a feature (Darrell Roodt's 'Prey') in South Africa in August. I've seen plenty of very long exposure stills of this and the effect of the stars streaking across the heavens are great. Can anyone suggest exposure times and frame rates to capture this on film? We can of course choose any stock we like. I would like to include some landscape elements in the compositions, and perhaps a vehicle. Hope someone can help.
Regards
