The AVX supports autoguiding. I can't speak for the specific product itself. Most people around here (I think), including myself, use more "conventional" guiding consisting of a guide scope (or Off-axis guider, ie OAG), guide camera, and their computer, via PHD guiding or a similar autoguiding program to achieve the goal. It *seems like it'd do the job, but in terms of "go-ahead", I'd wait for confirmation from more experienced users who might have direct experience with this product.

The way you are phrasing the questin indicates you need a bit more to look into before you start astroimaging.
We had a show on the Astro Imaging Channel the other day that may be of value to you.
And, you will find a whole forum dedicated to astrophotography iin the Astrophotography and Sketching section here on Cloudy Nights, below.

Turn off all noise reduction.
Set the White Balance to daylight if its there.
RAW + JPEG if its avaliable.
Using zoom lenses will get no detail on planets. You'll capture Jupiter's moons, but that's it. You still need a mount....
I don't think you understand autoguiding. Autoguiding will only work with mounts that are capable of it, like the AVX and the expensive EQs.
Second, do not get the Advanced VX if possible. Spend more, its really worth it.

Its going to be complicated and expensive and heavy. If you can't live with those things, you can't do AP.
Autoguider is a must. Heavy GEM or Fork is also a must. They require polar aligning. There is no streamlined way.
First, EPs are not lenses. They are eyepieces.
6SE: don't use for AP
EPs and Barlows and filters: don't use for AP
Only thing you really have for AP are your camera lenses and cameras.
Just start with this: https://www.bhphotov...m=Y&sku=1092106
and an intervalometer.
Software: Use DSS, and find a processing program.

All EQs have to be polar aligned correctly. So your wedge works perfectly fine.
I still wouldn't use it for AP as its not accurate enough.
I recommend you do some more reading before throwing yourself in.

I think people tried to respond and you didn't listen.
Go back and read what people posted and respond to them, don't just keep adding more and more info.
And use periods and sentences now and then, it will help get responses.

I think you've misread what I wrote,I was replying back to a recommendation, I have the mount for the dslr to telescope, not wedge mount,I've seen it upclose in my retailers and the manual doesn't really explain or help to set it up,after discussing and advice I chose not to get a wedge and I wouldn't recommend it either, I'm currently doing short exposures of 30 to 35 seconds, I'm currently looking at AVX or the German mount after much advice,I'm glad I didn't purchase the wedge
You said "I made a typing error,the wedge does work to a point but it's goto be polar aligned correctly which is a pain".
So you clearly had a wedge. But now you say you don't. I'm confused.

A little understanding and patience with someone trying to enter into a new unknown field goes a long ways to help them along, so let's give that a try.

I've was gona purchase one,I tried it out at the retailers,it's fiddly and the manual was rubbish,that's were I learnt what you have to do,to fiddly and my previous scope was a 5se that had a wedge and I didn't like it,I'm pushing my budget to £2-3k for my next scope,I do like the celestron evolution 9.25 telescope, ur experience is way beyond mine so Wat would you recommend in my budget
The 9.25" would be no good for DSO astrophotography.

The 9.25" wasn't designed for DSO AP. Rather, its better for planetary imaging.
Celestron doesn't custom-build scopes.
Posted 03 July 2017 - 05:59 AM
Thanks, I've done some research, ots ironic that it was originally designed to be for AP and DSO but things changed, I don't know how contact celestron, but if they build request telescope for AP,viewing and DSO AP, I'd pay up to 5-6k GBP if they could build me one,any1 know if they do or have experience with custom built telescope?
Visit Celestron's website. The link below will direct you to a Celestron website page where you can initiate a discussion with them. Perhaps one of their employees can advise you on the right telescope for your needs, or they can direct you to a helpful Celestron dealer in your locale who can do so.
