Great image! Can you comment on what you used for tracking during the 4 minute image?

Thanks!  I used an Astro-physics 900GTO mount.

What was your camera mounted on? I am very interested in this type of photography so I am really curious in what hardware etc you used in addition to the camera itself.

I had ADM drill three holes in a Losmandy-style dovetail plate so I could attach the 200mm lens using a Really Right Stuff foot replacement.  I attached the assembly to a Losmandy side-by-sidy mounting plate.  On the other side, I attached a SBIG ST-i with optional guider kit.
