Great shots for sure!  I'm curious on the time given for the lower shot please!  Knowing those things grow only at a certain elevation, I might travel west of Maricopa AZ next time I'm visiting family in the area and see if I can pull something like that off!

The settings vary but this particular shot was about 20 mins exposure. As a rule of thumb, and again, there's formulas for shutter times depending on focal length etc., etc., but in general, anything more than 30 seconds will start to trail stars. This one below is about 50 mins.
