Thats really worth knowing. I have previously steered clear of trying to solve images with severely trailed stars assuming it would say “Sorry guv, no stars in here”.
Stop Press: seems to depend on the aspect ratio of the trails. The longer a trail is compared to its width the less likely it is to solve. Still worth knowing that Astrometry.net can be quite tolerant.
