    skywatcher EQM-35 PRO

    Thanks for the reply, to be honest i know the HEQ5 is the answer. its just that im a bit wary buying second hand and would rather buy new. i do want to further my astrophotography so it will be a bit more saving pennies. i was just wondering the performance of the EQM35, as i currently use the Eq3, and i manged to get decent images with that, although i did a lot of work on it to get it to perform how id like.

    Eyepiece Maze 😀

    I own BST's and Celestron x-cel lx's and i find these to be very good all round lenses. clear crisp views through these lenses in both my Frac and 130pds. Scot.t

    How to get into imaging?

    Another one for making your first step making every photon count, also id like to say your picture is actually good and you have managed to capture some of the nebulosity there! keep going and all the very best. Scott
