CTDL 119: Astronomy photography project

I just posted this on my personal blog and thought it would work here too. I’ve tried some Astrophotography before, but never knew how to compensate for the earth movement without spending so much money as to be impossible. This is a very “Make Magazine” sort of project that I think I’ll try 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.
