After a very sturdy tripod and 'head/mount?' for general photography at the current moment but to also use for a Sky guider when I get one in the future
My questions are;
Which tripod do I need to handle a small scope and or camera with a big lens attached to sky guider, Tripod budget less than £100 Which sky guider should I go for to image the milkyway and nebula? probably 6-8 lbs payload? Budget less than, £400 Do sky guiders come with their own mount? I heard something about a ball head, mount budget less than £50 Is there anything else I may need with what I have mentioned, power, adaptors, filters etc. Much appreciated, I am new here so I hope this is ok to ask. I currently own a NEQ6 with two small telescopes which I have problems with that I will discus in another topic, so I know how to image that way, but I fancy something small and less stressful in the meantime.
Hi everyone, I am almost new to Astronomy - I currently have a Powerseeker set up but my mate has given me a konus digimax 90 he has lost the tripod can anyone advise me of a replacement tripod - I have a Go-To altaz mount I dont have a compatable Tripod I just want a cheap one. any links or any advice to get a tripod would be amazing - thanks in advance (im in the uk)

Dear Avalon Enthusiasts,
Do you have PHD2 Guiding Logs that you could share? Preferably at least 30 minutes long.
I am curious about the contribution to the overall error from the individual parts of the belt reduction gear. PHD2 Log Viewer provides nice analysis capabilities for that. I am especially interested in the frequency analysis.
Background is that I have built a motion module that uses a timing belt gear reduction quite similar to the Avalon mounts. Performance is quite good already, but I would like to compare it to the "real thing". 😃
