To image deep sky objects like the Horse you need to think, first, about the mount. You need an equatoprially aligned tracking mount. Exposure times are long (as in several minutes) so the system needs to track the stars and remain correctly orientated as well. To begin by thinking about the optics is a natural beginner's mistake but it really is a mistake. Mount has to come first.

The little scope seems to do well after a poor start when the optics became pinched in the cold. They seem to have sorted this, by all accounts.
