What EP are you tryng to use for this? You can also get motor drives pretty damn cheap these days for astrophotography. If I can snap a photo of Saturn in an undriven 10' dob...im sure you can do it, but Im using an EP with an 82* AFOV...that helps a ton...at least 4 mintues of drift at about x250.



the telescope I use have a diameter of 6 inches, the telescope my friend has is about the same only longer...

both of them aren't worth buying anything for, my theory is after 18 years of telescope night watching, if I am able to get a shot of the moon with a camera, but not any other planets it's not worth buying a motor for..

I was using a standard twist and lock camera harness, with a 4 position telescope and mine is a Galileo 2 way lock, problem is when you add the camera harness to either the weight is too much and the telescopes are to cheap to hold the weight as they essentially do not lock into place at all for that matter..

I will be investing in a new telescope before I try to use any photography again, the whole 3 hour deal was enough to want to throw the POS scope in the street.

I was looking at motors around 200-300 but it just wasn't worth it for a scope that I am assuming cost around 100-200. it is for regular viewing as you can see any object in our solar system but not for filming..

I used a Nikon Cool Pix Camera 12 megapixel.

thanks for the info though, I am investing in a new scope.

Marduk, I enjoyed meeting our "special guest" last night. I hope he comes to the forum tonight and I hope everyone will give him a chance to speak.

I was really impressed and charmed - a very smart, nice and funny guy.

I got the feeling that he is sincere - whether or not it's all true, I have no idea, but he's a gentleman and a very interesting person. Thanks for introducing me to him.
