Hi Jonathan,

May I wish you a warm welcome to the CameraLabs forum.

Star trails isn't something I've tried but a quick search turned up this video describing the free StarStaX software. Might be just what you want and the price is right!

Bob.

I've used StarTrails in the past. But now I think I'll have to try the one above too!
