At night, there's no secret. It's just a long exposure using a tripod. These in this thread were taken in the morning at sunrise. It's a two hour drive to get to Death Valley, so we were up a 2AM, out the door, and on the way.

Most DSLRs (that I know of) won't do more than a thirty-second exposure without another timing device. With film, we just used a cable-trigger that could lock down in bulb and timed manually. I use a Nikon MC-36 trigger for the D300.

Oh... and I post-process everything. Usually adjust exposure, curves, levels, pop the color a bit, etc.
