For planetary imaging you use a technique called lucky imaging, in which you use video and high frame rate (low exposure) to image.

So, if you requirement for a mount is limited to planetary imaging with the C8, then be able to guide is not a requirement.

But if you want to do any long exposure astrophotography you will need good guiding (at least as good as limited by the current seeing).

 

P.S. JMD, I hope you don't mind me answering the question on your behalf. smile.gif

John
