Orion Min-EQ Tabletop equatorial mount

Hi all, I was thinking of buying am Orion Min Eq mount for some astrophotography. The Skywatcher and Polarie is slightly off my budget for now, and I would like a temporary solution.

Re: Noob astrophotography

Noob astrophotography

Astrophotography by @perchloratepenguin and @xorinet, noobs to astrophotography. As we are students, our budget is low so we do astrophotography without tracking mounts.

Tips and advice are appreciated. Thanks!

I will be bringing along a Celestron 127slt. What dark spots are around the area, and will the milky way be v...
