I feel that I can justify this shot because it does have at least three visible stars that are trailing. The primary purpose of this image, however, is to tell a story - that it was 6:30pm, and our gear was already to go, yet we were clouded in so badly that we couldn't even do our alignment routines. This image shows Chad's setup, with his 60Da with 200mm lens, guide scope, and finder scope mounted side-by-side on his Celestron Advanced VX mount. Luckily, it cleared later, paving the way for an excellent night of imaging.
