- Star trails can often take a few hundred photos to create your final shot. With this in mind, plan accordingly when packing memory cards. It's always better to have extra then to run out part way through the night.
- Make sure your batteries are fully charged and always bring extra! Temperatures are often colder at night and can drain batteries quicker than normal.
- If possible, bring a second camera to shoot single images with. When you're traveling, it can be difficult to give your trails the proper time as it may be taking away from time you could possibly be obtaining additional images.
