Looking South Over Ferry Jetty
This is a shorter exposure than North - 72 exposures, roughly 36 minutes. I thought the glow from the city would be worse than this, but the city is around the corner with a mountain in the way.
You can see some airplanes near the horizon - they are likely going to YVR. You can also see that the equator is roughly in this image - the south pole is well over the horizon.

Star Trails Facing North At Porteau Cove
These are 30 second exposures stacking in photoshop. There are 75 images here so about 37 and a half minutes. (It's actually longer because there is a gap between one image ending and the next starting. The bright stars on the right are the handle of the big dipper.
You can see a single shooting star in this image.

Siwash Rock Star Trails Missing Clouds
This image is 30 second exposures stacked. Because the clouds are generally brighter than the stars, I had to mask out the clouds in each exposure. There are 100 frame here because my camera stops taking photos at 100 exposures if you just hold the button down.
