My first "piggy back" image ever. The camera (an old Exacta) was taped or tied to the counterweight of the German Equatorial # 1. I guided the image by keeping M 29 in the field of the 8" Newtonian and by constantly pressing dials on a keyboard provided for tuning the clock frequency of the home-made drive system.

This is not only the first image to be captured using this system, it is also the only one...
