The idea of the test was to try out a "Barn Door Tracker" that I built a couple weeks ago. The following image was taken with a 30 second shudder speed, which is just enough to detect star trailing. I plan on doing some film photography on this mount this summer, and thought I would try it out with the GE. I have taken other star images with it, so I know it will capture some things. Here is a photo of Orion, part of Monoceros and Canis Major. The cloud cover rolling in looks kinda cool, so I decided to post this image.
The 2 dark streaks on the bottom of the image are 2 small ham radio antennas that made its way into the photo.
