A photographic project

without comments

I’ve tried a few times doing some extended exposures of the stars, and wondered how to compensate for the movement (without the uber-expensive robotic computer controlled devices). This is a “make” type project I may try with Jake this summer.

This simple device is a great way to get started in Astrophotography. It is easily assembled from readily available materials, and produces some very rewarding results. It’s function is to move the camera to compensate for the rotation of the Earth thus preventing the trailing of stars in the photos.
