Depends on what you want to image, if it is DSO then things like tracking, alignment are very important as well as collimation of your telescope. If you want to image solar planets then DSLR is not the best equipment to do so. It is fine for Lunar imaging but difficult to obtain quality planetary images such as Saturn, Mars, Jupiter. You would need suitable web cam for this.
