Lazy imaging

A quick image taken with a 5D MkII and 100mm macro lens mounted on a EQ3 mount. I put the mount at the front door of the house, loosely aligned the mount with a compass and took 5 x 1 minute exposures at iso800 f4 and 10 darks with the camera looking east towards Capella. Pushed through DSS and finished in PS, This is the full frame edge to edge, at 100% magnification I can see a touch of trailing but I was expecting to see a lot more.

 

Details of the location can be seen here nova.astrometry.net/annotated_display/7431
