using a spare dslr with 400mm lens as autoguider

Recommended Posts

Can a spare DSLR be used for autoguiding?  I have a spare 400D that I can put a 400mm lens on piggy backed to my scope...perhaps I can put it to work?

This is not possible unless your guide software can download the images taken by the DSLR video function. Get a proper guide camera and save yourself a lot of hassle.
