Quote:I asked the same basic question in the DSLR imaging forum - I have an Orion Sirius Mount and an Orion ED80T on backorder, expected ship date is 9/27. I also have an Astroview 120ST, and I was wondering if I could buy a guiding camera and use that as the guiding scope in some combination. I got several responses and they all said the same basic thing - get Orion's 50mm autoguiding package. The large guidescope would have added flexure to the photos. Someone said that even the 80mm guidescope package was causing flexure. I'm saving up for the 50mm guidescope package. When I start guided imaging, I'll have the Sirius mount, the ED80T, and the 50mm guidescope. That's it.
