      The exposure time depends on a lot of different factors. The basic formula for figuring out the exposure is 600/focal length of the lens (i.e. 600/ 20mm lens =30sec exposure). Remember to take into account that if you are using a smaller sized sensor camera like a Canon 60D that would be 20mmx1.6 = 32mm to get your true focal length.
      Some of it is trial and error to get the shot. The wider the lens the longer exposure you can make, which helps. You need to pump up your ISO pretty high set your camera focus to manual and focus to infinite. Tripod is a must! A cable release helps to minimize camera shake.
      I was told that shooting stars is addictive and it surely is. I hope this helps some. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

      Nice shot Jeff!
