One thing I experienced was that if I increased the exposure length, the light pollution near the horizon was too visible in the image. I had to use shorter exposure lengths and bump up the ISO due to that. I guess if you try with short exposures(which is what you can do without a tracker anyway) and a reasonable ISO, you will be able to capture this. Just take many short exposures and stack them.

Noted :+1:t3:, Thank you for your points sir​:heart:
