I have a question on photographing the night sky. I have a Kodak DX6490 that has a 16 sec limit on timed exposures. This is not enough to get a good exposure of the stars. Is it possible to take two or more photos and stack them on top of each other in Photoshop to increase the exposure time? I know they do something like this in the Astronomy world but they have allot better equipment than I will ever have. If this can be done how would I go about it?

Thanks for any help.
