Hi, I have had a Skywatcher Skyliner 200p Dobs for a couple of years and am thinking about whether upgrading the mount is worthwhile. On another thread I asked about imaging and the HEQ5 came up. I can't/don't want to spend £800 so are there any cheaper mounts that would improve my enjoyment? I've only observed visually so far, but trying photography is always in the back of my mind and have decided to get a webcam to try some planetary pictures. For example, what would a Skywatcher EQ5 Deluxe mount allow me to do? At around £260 it is within my budget and I notice you can buy motors so there is an expansion route. Any other mounts under £300 worth considering. thanks, Tim.
Hi, I have a Skywatcher Skyliner 200p Dobs which I've had for a couple of years. I'd like to start some astro photography and am thinking about asking santa for a ZWO ASI120MC. So first question, will it just 'work' out of the box by using it instead of an eyepiece? Second question, is it worthwhile? I know I'm limited by the lack of a tracking mount but I'd like to get some decent images of the planets and possibly some of the brighter dsos that I can see with the eyepieces. I'm imaging I can use several second exposures for planets and possibly some limited stacking for the dsos. Am I being realistic? Is it worth the money? thanks, Tim.
