Barndoor guider hand driven. Canon Rebel XT w/ Tamron 28-80 mm zoom lens at 48 mm.
A 3 minute exposure @ f/4.5,ISO 400. I use an IC Digital recorder with a voice track as a timer. This allows me to enjoy the sky while rotating the drive screw on the Barndoor guider. Conditions were perfect: cool with no wind and great transparency.
