    went out tonight and played with the rig some more. I really need to make some adjustments to take out all the play. Actually, I need to build a new rig out of 3" tubing.

    EDIT: new pic added

    did a quick PS on the second pic to remove the rig and didn't do a very good job. I am not good with PS.

    looks like a bumpy car park.. or you need a more sturdy rig.

    I need a more sturdy rig. Still, these aren't bad for 3 second exposures.

    My plan is to build another one out of 3" tubing to eliminate all the side to side flex. I'm also going to mount it under the car with magnets and clamps instead of on top with suction cups.

    No lights were used for either of these shots. Just ambient light from outside mixed with the lights in the parking garage.

    cool. check your spreader is tight.. it appears to be bouncing or pitching a little - the light trails are squigley not straight... once you get that sorted it should be pretty sweet :bowdown:

    actually, try putting a piece of string on the lower side over a spreader to hold it down, that should get rid of most of the bounce

    I need to pick up some more wire and run it to a third suction cup to eliminate side to side flex as well. I've got the cup but I ran out of wire.
