Ioptron pro smart eq mount new
      #6176892 - 11/05/13 07:35 AM

Hello everyone. I'm looking to get into astrophotography. I was looking at the ioptron pro smart eq mount. My only concern is wondering if the mount is too shaky to do long exposure. I'm thinking of putting a Williams optics 71mm doublet refractor. As you can tell yeas I'm a buget haha. I'd appreciate it if you could give me some info on this mount. Thanks. I look forward to your replies.

Probably no longer relevant but I did some AP with the Smarteq pro.
Here are my results in case you are still looking at this mount.

And this is my result with this great little mount.
I managed to shoot 15-minute guided frames without any big effort.

Ciao,
Piero
