I mounted my camera, with an 8mm fisheye lens, on a tripod, and faced the lens straight up towards the sky. To try to give you a perspective, check out this accidental selfie I took while setting this up.
I set the shutter between 4 and 6 seconds and slowly spun the camera so that it completed one revolution while the shutter was open.
To help you visualize how I did this, I made this quick movie – note the lens cap is still in place :-o.
I moved the camera in a more constant and smooth motion when I took the photo, which is difficult to do while holding a cell phone camera.
