For those of you using the Sky Watcher EQM-35 for imaging, are you able to get round stars with a 200mm lens using unguided 1 minute exposures?  I'm looking for a travel friendly mount for imaging under ~200mm that is more robust than the Sky Guider Pro but not as big as the HEQ5 Pro.

Nope as much as I like my EQM-35 I haven't been able to get round stars exposing at a minute or more without guiding.  That's why I use mine more for EAA..

I'm no help but I bought mine for the same reason you did. Though I'm hoping to use up to a 400mm lens. I'll be interested in what replies you get.
