Stars?
 
Give me some pointers on how to get good pics of stars, Milky Way, etc

Or point me in the right direction to read up on it

Yes I know I could google it but more interested in TBH tutoring :)

High ISO
Turn on long exposure noise reduction if your camera has it
Use a wide aperture like 2.8
Don't expose over 25 seconds or so as the stars will move in that amount of time
Use a tripod
Mirror lock-up helps to reduce camera shake due to shutter opening and closing
A remote would be very helpful though the self timer will work too

Everything Casey said but I put the iso way down to reduce noise/static stuff. But I'm using a t5i so not the best iso. Also shoot when there is no moon and away from cities/towns. If no remot then use the timer. But remotes are like 15-20 bucks on Amazon

I agree, follow Caseys lead. I usually use ISO 800 as a starting point, and then adjust as needed. Usually 800 is a good place to be(for me anyway). I shoot in manual mode, drop the F stop as low as your lens will go, dial in to 800 ISO, and will start around 5-10 second SS. That should get you in the ballpark.

Anybody have a preference on the remote shutter release? Lots of them on amazon and its hard to tell which ones are decent.

My little brother has taken the hobby of viewing and picture taking of stars and planets to another level. If you are in need of any equipment related to this you ought to check out his website alpineastro.com

Here is a link to a site that I used to get me started shooting shots of the Milky Way.
