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.
No, I don't have a wede just yet. I really want to start out imaging planets before I proceed to the more challenging DSO's. If I was going to get a wedge for my 8SE, I'd rather just buy a new EQ mount to put my OTA on.

Now going back to the DBK. How is the DBK with the Moon?
