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.

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.
