Snowy Range Star Trails

This was a royal pain to process! 350 images stacked using the lighten blending method. But I wanted to create something different by tapering off the trails which I describe on my blog www.davidkinghamphotography.com/blog/2012/4/comet-like-st... this required layers to change the opacity, but photoshop was brought to it's knees with that many layers. So I opened 7 at a time, changed the opacity, flattened, repeat. Someone tell me it was worth it...
