Recommended Posts

I’m about to try my hand at EAA i currently use a cpc800 which is alt-az I’ll be using it with a ZWO ASI224MC USB 3.0 CMOS Colour Camera, an Asiair plus and an f6.3 focal reducer. 
considering the alt-az setup what kind of results can I expect using live stacking.

I have just started EAA with a 6 inch goto dob and a ZWO ASI 585 so this is very much a beginner view but...

I would say you can get some good results with that setup on smaller objects. The 224 has a small FOV but you have a quality mount and decent aperture. Astronomy tools FOV will give you an idea of how the targets will fit in your camera.
