My first foray into astrophotography was with a Meade 8 inch F10 SCT on a NEQ6Pro. I used a ZWO OAG with ASI120MM-S, home made motor focuser driving a WO crayford focuser. After a bit of tuning in regard to the positioning of the OAG mirror. This was to optimise the star light in but avoiding creating an obstruction to the main camera and of course getting it parfocal with the main camera. I never had any problem getting guide stars and guiding was better than using a guide scope.
The scope itself was not designed for photography so results were limited in that respect but it was fun to make do with what I had on hand.
I still use OAG but in a refractor set up.
