Quote:If you get a great mount, you won't have a "nightmare" that you don't want to tackle.
Quote:This one doesn't. And I have the poor mount, a Celestron CG-5. But with some care, I have taken subs as long as 10m.I definitely want to replace the mount, but I am learning plenty and having a good time with my camera. I purchased a STF-8300m and that was a huge difference over what I was getting with my unmodded Canon 50d.I have a pretty good idea of what a perfect mount would do for me, and although I would throw out less frames, in my case it would not lead to pictures as much better as the difference in those cameras.My two cents.
