Hello and advice appreciated.

Postby Lupomen » Mon Nov 23, 2020 12:12 pm

Hi, I have long wanted to have a bash at astrophotography, I am a bird photographer and own a number of large lenses. I am reading as much as I am able and have an astro modified DSLR . I am wanting to purchase a mount/tracker with go to which would be capable of carrying a heavy lens and would appreciate advice as to what to look at. I appreciate this is a bit like asking how long is a piece of string but want something that is good enough for me to have a bash without becoming discouraged by the mounts failings let alone my own !
any help appreciated.

Thanks

Paul.
