Questions about this item:

Matei m  Hello. I plan to use this MOUNT for star tracking with a dslr. Is it any good? What king of tracking do I need for this type of job (longer exposures)... EQ? Alt-az? Thank you
Andrew R  This may work for your needs, however depending on your camera you may be adding too much weight for this unit's mount to handle properly.
