I see you have a Celestron 8SE. Do you have a wedge to go with that to mount it in equatorial mode? Without being mounted in equatorial mode you are limited in the DSO imagery you can undertake. You will get field rotation after a very short period of time. Meade DSIs get around it by using drizzle technology, but I'm not sure if that is available for other cameras. Also do you have an off axis guider for guiding your DSO imager or are you thinking of getting a guidescope? That option might be a bit much for the single arm 8SE.
