Good day

I want to do minor planet astrometry and need some advice.

I am thinking of mounting my old 10" Meade Starfinder onto a CGEM
mount and buying a SBIG ST8XMEC2 (1530 x 1020 pixels at 9 microns). I
have already replaced the stock focusser with a Crawford model from

The tube stats are:
focal length = 1150mm
aperture = 254mm

The pixel scale will be 1.61 "/pixel with a field of view of 41.17' x
27.44'. This is not the widest field of view but much wider than that
of the ST7.

Any concerns I should take note of?
