    Just found out about stacking images in PS. So tonight being clear, I decided to try my luck. Because of the light pollution, I was limited to 90 sec exposures. This was around 18 shots. I cant believe how easy a gap in the trail shows up in between pictures. Because of all the small gaps, I used difuse glow which helped bleed the light in the trails together. Cant wait for a better, dryer night. The cloudy area left of center is the milky way.

    Looks good for so many photos stacked together. I see what you mean by the gaps, digital stars. I've still yet to try this, been meaning to do so for months.
