    This is what I usually use. the other rig is a drink and go
    I prefer the pier as it's EQ but the Alt az is better for eyeball use

    Okay, now that I finally have all of my gear, here is my current setup. I'm set on gear, but I need to get me a little folding table and dispense with the 2 chairs. It works for now though. I'm more concerned with getting proficient at tightening up my guiding. Used it to capture some very nice guided shots of Bodes tonight, but after about 5 minutes she's start slipping. Need to fiddle with the brain a bit and tinker with the settings. I also need to figure out how the hell to stack and process the pics, and then I'll throw them up on the forums.

    My Skywatcher Black Diamond 203/1000 + HEQ5 + Canon EOS 550D. Soon, a Meade DSI + guiderscope.

    The picture was taken at the last "star party" organized with other local astronomers.
    Capturing Jupiter. And the result, above.
