  1. Thanks both for replying and for for all the info and the process I would need to get this working right. Very helpful and completely clears up my question. You even provided some great bonus info I wasn’t aware of.. thanks endlesssky. Clear skies! Steve
  2. Hi all, I’ve read so many posts here over the last few months but have never posted. So here goes. :) This feels like a dumb question, but I’m thinking about getting a iOptron CEM40 to grow into but will be using for starters with my new Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary lens on a Nikon D750 and D7200. I figure with that light of a load, I could probably image with the full 900mm when mounting with the D7200 on a CEM40 and then grow into telescopes for years to come. (But would start with more wide field targets.) Anyway, the point of my post is I also have the new version of the Rokinon 14mm f2.8 for Milky Way and starscapes. I’ve done a lot of googling but can’t find mention of people dual-purposing a GEM for both deep sky and tracked Milky away imaging. I assume you would just pick an object in the Milky Way to track on and use your wide angle lens like you would on a Skyguider Pro or Star Adventurer, yes? Odd that I can’t find people talking about using a goto GEM for long exposure Milky Way shots. Or maybe I’m just not looking in the right places. Thanks! Steve
