Allan,
dreaming? Get out of here. If there is a forum member who doesn't dream I'll eat my hat, and I have just had lunch too.
Go for it. Yep, it will be an uphill battle, but at least you know that before you start. Keeping the focal length as short as you can, so read "REDUCER" here, and the exposures short will mean you should get away with decent results.
I would try the wedge too, as having it polar aligned will make a world of difference to the alt/az method.
Plus, if and when you go from the fork to the GEM, the camera can stay and do further service with another scope/mount/whatever.
Gary
