I'm curious how you'll fare. I haven't had much luck over the years, probably because I only try for shots of convenience, and I'm all of four miles from the city, so...even if air quality was awesome (never, in the humid eastern seaboard summer), light pollution still fails me. Out of curiosity, I did research how, way back then...
If you make the effort to isolate yourself from those two deal breakers, then you might have a shot...take your brightest wide-angle lens, and a rock-solid tripod and go bonkers w/ your remote trigger. If you want to avoid startrails, it's 500/focal-length to derive the longest shutterspeed you can use.
If you are savvy with post processing & have Lightroom/PS, you might want to try stacking your images, because shooting at high ISOs obviously introduces noise, and they have tools that help you take out the rotation.
