Goto mount with only a dlsr

Recommended Posts

Evening all. I was thinking of getting a Sky watcher star adventurer gti with a redcat 51 for getting back into AP....but could I get excellent  results with just my dslr - D7100 - and a good lens ? 

I will be in Bortle 3 skies

Given you are under b3 skies then dslr and lens are a good option. I’m under b4 skies and usually use uv/ir cut filters. However. It will depend on the lenses used. The SW Adventurer has a weight limit and longer fl camera lenses can be heavy with their internal focusing mechanisms, where an Astro optic of similar spec will generally be lighter (physically). Should you change to an Astro camera at some stage camera lenses may not be adaptable, or accept filters…
