    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.

    David,

    I think these are definitely Burnham. Stefan Beck has suggested dates and times. I’ve updated the page with the latest info although I may have missed some. Independent confirmation would be good.

    Nick.

    Following on from Paul. Defo Bennett. Print 6, morning of 11 Apr 1970; print 7, morning of 10 Apr 1970. I may be wrong, but the bright star to the right of the comet in print 6 may be omicron And, with 2 And even further to the right.
