Star Trail Photography

Has anybody tried their hand at Star Trail photography?

I came across this article on the BBC website - http://www.bbc.co.uk/leicester/conte..._feature.shtml

Here is a link to a bigger version of Marks star trail photo - http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/72962...327_nzish-A-LB

I tried this using an E-1 and found that I could only take 12 photos before the having to re-set the wired remote control.

Can this type of photography be done with an E-1, or should I expect to keep re-setting the remote control at the end of each set of 12 photos?

Alternatively, could this be done with an E-520, a wired remote control, or would I still be limited to 12 photos?
