you're right - this has been asked loads of times. If you click where it says "Search" up the top of the page you can search these threads for all the topics.

But a quick summary would be - any camera can take pictures, turn off the flash generally (unless you've got a flashy camera and get good with it but I'm guessing you haven't...) and the longer the exposure (the length of time the aperture remains open) the longer the trails look.

But your search will be more helpful than me
