    I'd recommend a book I've been reading: A Manual of Advanced Celestial Photography, Brad D. Wallis, Robert W. Provin .

    Amazon has a used one for $1.57 , a very interesting book, it also shows how during decades astronomy advanced by recording objects that could not be seen by human eye.

    I bought a slightly better condition, I dislike mold.

    $5.99

    Thanks, but I usually use ABE Books, I find them cheaper with a bigger range.

    I may even have this book already, but I can't find it after my move.

    The 'hinge' is so simple and now that I can actually see the stars, I will. I was inside Chicago for a long time. Now rural.

    Thanks again!

    In the book I indicated (see the post n.3 or 5) you will find a practical guide to building your "hinge" and even its practical limits (with the correct explanation of their reason). Enjoy your rural darkness!

    Got a very clean 1988 copy, last night.

    Looks good on first skim.

    I like the cover inset WA Star Sky print with words by Edward Abbey,

    "Concrete is heavy and iron is hard
    but the grass will prevail"
