And Just one more to Show my max stacking time(ALT/AZ mode)unguided,,The HH was up very high,near'r zienth,but
this is a 6 min stack in alt/az at that night and altitude was about my limit.You can see
field rotation takin over some...But I take that any time for true simplicity..
of no guiding,alt az auto align...and small scope....hehe
PORTABLE set Up

Iv been working on this project for a year now. Obtaining different scope's,reducers, and cameras,and mount to get a
totally easy to use,light to setup,and AUTO ALIGN setup combo,that fun to use...

Im very happy with my results.....and a Hi end refractor at a great price ($750) The total package is under 3k.

Here is a M31 pic I took tonight with setup in signature using SharpCap 2.7 stacking.

I let it run 2300 frames (23 minutes) with LN300 set to (X128) 2.5 second exposures. 

Location was in a red/white zone in the city.  The dust lanes looks quite eerie.
