Affordable Tracking Mount for Astrophotography

Im not sure if this has been posted yet or not but I thought it would appeal to all those without a tracking mount to take some tracked astro pics with a lower budget in mind. Have a read and tell me what you think..... http://www.bahneman.com/liem/photos/...06092712472663 Great information site for anyone with a Canon DSLR too! Mike.B.

interesting product! Not being able to aim at the Zenith is quite a problem especially for those of us who can't wait a few hours
I wonder if the following quote might shed some light on this mysterious shortfall in performance.
Quote:
Another problem is the proper alignment of the declination axis with Polaris. There's no provision in the small shaft for a site scope, and there are no markings

Still, it does seem like good investment.

I gotta laugh though. That's a fancy new name for an EQ1 on smaller legs!

Here is a pic of their 'MINI' EQ with battery drive, and my EQ1 with battery drive.

Hmmmm, I'll have to buy a heap of EQ1's, throw away the tripods and sell em as MINI EQ's
