That is why you see severe vignetting! Seventeen 10 seconds exposures with a Canon 10D dslr stacked using Deepskystacker and tweaked in Corel Paint Shop Pro X.
Part of the Orion Nebula.

Ok gotta ask what your settings were? I have been trying forever to catch the milky way and have never been able to.

I've read a lot on tracking devices and also came up on the astrotrac, for it's reasonably low price.
The reason i didn't go for it was because of the diferrent reviews( negative).
Now after seeing your images they look quite amazing with some good tracking.
Could you give me your impressions on the device? Tracking, aligning, build quality (stability),power requirements,... It would be a lot of help. Thanks
