Description

Well finally all come together and I think this actually pretty acceptable image. I visit my sister for Jol and we note a clearing of sky, as had brought camera and tracker set all up, sky clear and off we go!

30 x 150s with Canon Xsi (unmod) 50mm lens at ISO 800 f3.5.

I cannot even say how happy I am with this but has been ambition for over two years and now realized!

Thanks to all who helped, gave advice and encouragement, much appreciated.
