Very nice for a handheld shot. Of course, I'm sure it helped to have tracking.

Thanks! Tracking definitely helps! Some of the earlier shots in my gallery were taken before I added the tracking motors.

I'm a big fan of handheld images and have joked in the past about starting a 'hand held only'club.I think this is a teriffic image,very well done. What camera were you holding?

I would gladly join that club! I was holding a Canon Power Shot A590 set to video.

I also have been looking at your handheld shots and am amazed at what images can be achieved. You need to write an article on this subject!

Thanks! Rule 1 of hand held: Steady hand. Rule 2: Refer to Rule 1. It's challenging but fun. I'm definitely limited on resolution due to the combination of the camera and the hand holding but it's still fun. An actual planetary camera is on the wishlist.
