Great shot! Can I just ask are you hand guiding motors with a controller or literally nudging the manual controls on the mount? Just asking as it's not a technique I've used and always like to know more!

Manual guiding uses buttons to control the motors. It's not humanly possible to physically nudge it without ruining the photograph. Manual guiding was originally the only way guiding could be done until electronic autoguiders were invented. Even professional telescopes were manually guided, and it was quite a grueling process even with electronic motors. This drawing of the 48" Schmidt at Palomar depicts an observer manually guiding the huge telescope through a guide scope:

Couldn't resist trying some long exposure during or last snow storm. This is a stacked and stitched vertical pano 3 rows wide and 4 rows tall done with a Pentax 50mm f/2 hope y'all like.

Jeezus, Who pissed in your cheerios? You know, When someone gives you a compliment, you should show better manners Pal. I like your images a lot, maybe you're just having a bad day? Well it happens to all of us sometimes.

Here, hope this helps. Turn that frown upside down ngchunter! ~$heopleNation

Thank you so much. It sure was a pain in all it has 108 frames for the stacked part and to process the photo. My fiancee thinks I'm going crazy for doing it.

Is it ISS? I am no expert on our space vessels, but it is, right? Too big for a sattelite. Or is it MIR? Is that thing still up? Urch I don't even know that...
But I love all pretty space pictures.

It's ISS, Mir was deorbited a long time ago.
