The only other films that can approach Acros in reciprocity are TMAX 100 and Delta 100. Acros has been the gold standard for night shooting for some time. It is a joy to shoot.
Thank you for the kind remarks guys. I also recommend Night Photography by Lance Keimig. Film and development choices are covered as well as exposure. A brief history of night photography highlights the books opening. Many examples of photography with Acros are covered.
Here are a couple of multi-minute exposures done on Acros. These were both about 5 minute exposures.
These are great as well Chris. I've got to get out and try this, thanks for sharing.
Not noting on long exposure, But Acros is one amazing film. I/m not a fan of t grain films but there is something about Acros. One of my 3 images that I've ever made, that I would call my best work was shot on Acros. I has such a beautiful curve and smoothness to it.
Acros is unsurpassed for night shooting. I've used it extensively and have attended workshops with the above-mentioned Lance Kemig. Great guy, great knowledge. Most of my shots are done for about 5-10 minutes at f/5,6 depending on how much ambient light there is.
Here's a few examples of my work with Acros at night:

Very nice work Rich. Will be starting to capture some images soon, thanks for sharing.
Acros is my favorite fine-grained film for landscapes and night work.

East Bay, North Bay by atomicthumbs, on Flickr
Chaparral Plains by atomicthumbs, on Flickr
Each of these is a sixteen-minute exposure on Acros at f/16, one night away from the full moon; the first two are 645, the second two are 6x7. I noticed very little effect from reciprocity failure in any of them.
