This photograph was taken in a trailer park in Yuma, Arizona.

Canon TC-80N3 remote control

You can see that the stars in the sky have made trails as the earth moves relative to them.

I kept the shutter of the camera open for a relatively long period (about 10 minutes) using a Canon TC-80N3 remote control. This unit has various settings, such as self-timer, interval timer, long-exposure timer, and exposure-count. In this photograph I used long-exposure timer.

I also made a sequence of photographs that I intend to turn into a timelapse video soon.

If you have a camera such as a Canon 350D, 400D, 450D or 500D, you can get a conversion cable to use the Canon TC-80N3 here.
