Hi there,

I've seen several timelapses where it looks like the sun is still in the sky(in some cases at least 30 minutes or more from setting and yet the stars are visible. How is that being accomplished with a sky that doesn't seem to have any stars in it. Is it a composite with a video of night and day being combined or is there some kind of ND grad at work?

Maybe it's the moon?

I would go for JEL's suggestion. When you're doing a timelaps of stars you need the shutter speed set to around 15-30 seconds. Perhaps more. With the strong light from the moon it shines like the sun at this long exposures.
