Hello everyone, Hope you are all well in these interesting times! I have noticed A situation that some of you may have come across. My mount setup is always the same; level the tripod with A torpedo level, install mount head and connect up/initialize. Polar align, which is so easy to do with the clock style reticle, mount/balance scope with camera accessories on it. I then typically do A 1star alignment. What I find happening is that initially I get slight star trails at even A minute of exposure. After several minutes and images I can typically get 4 plus minutes un-guided. I am using A short reflector at 650mm, and the mount has A belt drive conversion on it. My firmware is A bit dated, not sure if that could contribute. I use A Sony A57 as my camera and typically mount the scope with the focuser vertically up. Would I have better results with it vertically down? Thanks for your time!
