Here is the place to talk about all those equipment(Telescope, Mounts, Eyepieces, etc...) you have. Not sure which scope/eyepiece is best for you? Trash it out here!

Hmmm, not bad.

Just doing a quick preliminary session of 45sec x 13 frames with rough polar alignment (still need to adjust this some).

I can see myself shooting a lot more with this very simple setup!

I have buy a LX3 and the current BPM without load it’s about 130 BPM. I tested with a Canon 550D and a 50mm lens and seems to work ok for 2min exposures..

Is there any more photos you can share using this Oregon Mount Mini Track LX2? Can advise what you do mean by “rough” polar alignment? I have MSM star tracker, up until today I still cannot align it properly. Because I cannot see the Polaris from my place here. So can teach how to do a rough polar alignment? Is this product good? It looks very portable. Hahaha
