Andrew, in your circumstances that's entirely reasonable.
Much of my commentary is predicated upon the use of a dedicated planetary camera...& principally with an EQ mount.
There are a couple of folks whom I haven't seen here for a while who capture excellent planetary images with a simple "push-to" dobsonian mount...I should have left out the "in any circumstances" tbh but for larger EQ mounted scopes & dedicated cameras I think my somewhat "throwaway" comments are relevant - but I'm happy to admit there are said provisos to it!
ps: even though the EQ8 is a relatively heavy EQ mount, since I made the pier for it it would have to rank as extremely easy to set up...I'd suggest no more difficult that an Alt/Az tbh...but I'm not trying to sell you anything you don't need..!
No worries, I realise I'm on the fringe of the mainstream methods, but it's sometimes good to do things a bit differently. That, I'm too cheap to buy a heap of new stuff just now .
