That was on the Astronomy Picture of the Day a little while ago, along with another shot by the same photographer. APOD is definitely a bookmark-worthy site.

I've got a photgraphy question. It concerns the pics that were displayed in this thread. If you take time exposure of stars without a telescope you will get a streak. If you use a telescope with a timer for movement, the foreground would blur. How are these photographers able to get such beautiful pics?

We just had a discussion about basic stellar photography here: Jupiter's Moons

Multi-hour panoramic shots (such as many on that site above) most often require stitching.
