I "liked" your post for your attitude toward the hobby, but as the others said, the dob isn't the ideal choice for EAA or AP. That would be a job for the small frac.
However, you said that you have the Virtuoso 150 on order. I know there are folks who have done some very nice AP work with the OneSky (Jlandy comes immediately to mind), so it's not impossible. Keep in mind that his AP stuff was done with the OneSky on a motorized EQ mount. I've not yet even dipped my toes into either EAA or AP, but I've read that some software used for EAA will derotate the field, so it can be done with an alt-az mount, but that EQ mount will probably give you the best results. Since this is a visual only forum, let's focus on that part. The Virtuoso 150 should be a lot of fun for visual observation.
Whatever path you take, I hope you enjoy the journey!
Thank you Dave. We are reading and doing research on EQ mounts. The wife is drooling over a few lol. As far as software the good & bad, understand this; my wife is a software engineer and solves/corrects/makes a living at this. As far as our first hardware choices we’re not expecting to get great results; we just want to start learning the processes and techniques before investing in more serious equipment. Each scope gives us the opportunity to learn different things. For now visual/manual astronomy is our first goal to learn and enjoy, and we’re sooo excited!
