I have an Orion Skyquest XT10 that I'm absolutely in love with and have a few questions on taking my astrophotography to the next level with it.
I was contemplating on building a dovetail strap to go around my XT10 tube to connect it to a dovetail mount so I could mount it to a equatorial tracking mount.
1. Is that possible?
2. On a tight budget could I please have suggestions on which mount or mounts to consider purchasing to withstand the payload and with a smooth tracker for deep sky imaging?
3. Also. If it's to expensive and to much of a headache to go that route would it be cheaper and easier to just save up and purchase something like a Celestron 8SE that's going for around 1k?
I would like to stick with my dob if possible though.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and clear sky's!
