Quote:How much would I be loading up on the mount?- A celestron 80ed refractor- autoguider (guiding through the 80ed)- Modded 20D with upto a 70-200mm f/4L lens- maybe 5 min exposures (no more then 10min probably)I know an atlas will be better, but seriously 1500 bucks for something that may get little use? I can't really justify that right now. I wish I could, but what I can do is get something I can use that is half the price and save for the Atlas or maybe something bigger. If nothing else, I can sell the LXD75 later onI now I am probably going to get strung up for this, but it has been so long since I have done astrophotography and I have cameras, autoguiders and computers laying around collecting dust and I am tired of missing a chance at doing something with the option pops up to do so.
