    Arrow Drift Alignment for Astrophotography



    Ok, tonight I wasn't able to get out but I have been reading and thinking. I read a bit about more about drift alignment and would like to try this. I will be also posting photos and a review here of how to accomplish this.

    If anyone can post feedback or some helpful tips would appreciate it a lot
