The white lines at the bottom are the headlights of passing cars. It took me a while to figure out what the 2 vertical lines were. I figured they were telephone poles, but there was only one there. It finally dawned on me that it was the same pole lit up by 2 different cars about 10 minutes apart-the different locations due to the scope's tracking. There is also a faint line going almost horizontally through the picture. This was a plane flying through. There's a LOT of air traffic out there. I try to cover the lens (without touching it) whenever a plane flies through, but I couldn't get them all.
This was taken from a very dark location in Cummington, Ma.
