Just to clarify something for me: If I have an ST80 with a DSLR, will the combined weight work on a small tracker such as the Skywatcher Star Adventurer Pro? I'm mostly playing around with what I have right now to learn. I have the ST80 (and I have for it a very long focuser that gives me a lot of options using cameras), and I have a DSLR and I have a ZWO ASI462mc. I also have a tripod with an 11 pound payload.
I know, I know -- to REALLY get into it, I need a bigger mount and a different refractor. But is it theoretically possible to use my ST80 with an attached camera and the Star Adventurer tracking mount?
