Oh! I thought it took longer than that -- though I suppose over thirty minutes you would get signs of motion, right?

Anything over 30 seconds requires a star tracker, but all star trackers have periodic error, preventing exposures past 4-5 minutes unless your system has a guide scope as well. It gets fairly complicated 🌠✌🏽
