Orion Min-EQ Tabletop equatorial mount

Post by perchloratepenguin »

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. I heard that it is pretty good for wide angle shots, but has anyone tried doing deep sky with it? I am planning to pair it with a 400mm camera lens. Thanks!

Even with the star adventurer 400mm is quite a stretch... But if you're resourceful enough then never say never. I guess it depends on your expectations too. Good luck!
