When in Sydney I was shopping for a 400d fortunately I held off but in the haggling I picked up this lens for $180-00 I recon it will be great for some wide field and puts off the day for the eq6, which puts off the 400d and a triplet 80
...anyways it raining so I took a shot to show the ins and outs of the lens showing the fields of view. So I recon it will be a cheap yet effective set up. Second hand 300d (mine
), 75-300 lens capture, 70x600mm ar guide scope and eq5 mount manual guide motor drive. The mount should be up to it as its (cam etc) light and I can reduce the local length if there are noticeable tracking errors.. So next dark sky I will see what I can bag.
