No Clock Drive Worked Better Than I Thought

GIMP's levels tool is always so pleasing:

Nearly every astrophoto that I have taken with the 17.5" reflector was when it was on an equatorial mount.  Now that it is impractical to do that, I was sure that I was not going to be able to do any astrophotos.  But this came out pretty good.  1/350th of a second; ISO-200.  Past first quarter is not optimal, but neither is being bit by mosquitoes.
