I'm a beginner too

Hi Malcolm
I'm just starting out on the long road of astro- imaging as well.
I have an EQ5 goto with a 8 inch skywatcher newt (was all I could afford at the time). I jumped in feet first as well and recommend researching more that I did before you buy. I would like to upgrade to and HEQ5 or 6 at some point but I will try to get the most out of what I have got for a while yet.
I am struggling with polar alingment at the moment, just when you think you have it, it goes off a bit. Its all part of the fun and learning process.

Have fun
