Star Time lapsing

Ok so shooting stars isn't the hardest thing to do, but shooting a time lapse of stars is kinda tricky, cause you gotta have a really long shutter (like 20 to 30 seconds) then a delay for the interval. So you're only getting around 2 photos a minute and to make a good time lapse you need atleast 200-300 photos imo. Another thing to take into consideration is the rule of 600, and that refers to the focal length of your lenses and how long of a shutter you can have before the stars start to leave a light streak. For example if I shot the stars on a 30mm then that would be 600 divided by 30 = 20, which means I could only have a 20 second shutter before the stars would start to leave light streaks. Hopefully I'll get some good lapses in the future but this attempt wasn't too great.
