    I didn't even know people were doing shots like this. Do yourself a favor and take a look at this picture of the Milky Way that took 125o total exposure hours to capture. The final product is ~100,000 pixels in width. They started taking this single picture in 2009 and just finished, amazing how long it takes to capture that much light but totally worth it.

    This is crazy cool! It's like the longest exposure ever taken.

    That certainly IS amazing. But actually the longest exposure ever taken is happening right now. A photographer and artist set a camera to take a 1000 year exposure of Tempe Arizona.

    Wow! That video looks like it glitter or metallic paint in water. Makes you think about our galaxy and everything around us.

    1000 years? Ok ok, that certainly takes the mantle. Sucks they won't be around to see it finished but I guess that's more of a legacy play.
