So the big draw of EAA is short exposures allowing near realtime viewing of deepsky objects. When reading, there is alot of talk about short exposures and the use of Sharpcap and watching the photo object build on the screen.
So, assuming an F4 to F6 scope, in moderately light polluted areas (not dark sky and not metro)
1) how short is short?
2) how short is too short?
3) how many exposures are usually taken based on the above answers?
Of course there is no DEFINITIVE answer and many things need to be taken into consideration such as aperture, focal ratio, light pollution, etc. However is there a general "ballpark" answer for EAA that would be the equivilent of shooting an 85 in golf? Not a pro at par or less, but not a total duffer shooting 100, but just a fun day out on the course for the average joe, or in this case, a fun night at the scope for average joe looking at some neat stuff with no post processing but using live stacking.
