I dont use that gear but you can start with a bahtinov mask to help you focus stars. I don't expect you to be able to see dsos on your screen, they are too faint. you have to be precise precise precise with alignment and certain your goto is putting them in shot. To capture look for exposure settings, you want to increase this far far away from what you use for planets. You'll need to figure out the numbers but a good tracking 5 second exposure should give you an idea if you are capturing your target. Tune from there. bahtinov + exposure i think is what you are asking for.
