    im wondering about exposure times to get stars to streak across the picture. im going out to Mt. Ranier national park and want to get a shot of the mountain with stars streaking over it. also, what speed film should i use, i was thinking 100 or 50 iso, and about a 2 hr. exposure.
    how d'you think that would work out??

    thats sounds good, except the mountain might not show up completely, depending on how much light you can get... a mountains pretty big.
