Caption: I recently bought a star tracking mount for my camera tripod and I put it to the test tonight. I mounted my camera to it and hooked everything up to my computer then let the computer "snap away" while I sat inside my house eating some cereal. This was taken with my Nikon D3000, Tamron 70-300 lens @ 300mm, f/5.6, ISO 800, and 36 exposures @ 15 seconds each (total of 9 minutes exposure time). I actually actually had another 50 photos, but the clouds moved in and destroyed the remaining 50 photos.
