Looking at a telescope for some astrophotography at the end of the summer, I've been looking at kit for several weeks and from what I've found this seems to be a fairly common combination - Skywatcher Evostar 80ED DS-Pro & HEQ5 PRO.
What are people's thoughts, is there anything better at a similar outlay? I'll be using either a 6D or 5D3 so there will be a bit of weight hanging off it.
I have found the more I look the more confusing it is, and although there may be threads already on here the search facility never seems to work as expected.
Stupidly I bought a Celestron LCM114 a few years ago. I have never got it working properly, it's never tracked accurately and it's impossible to colimate even with the colimation tool. It's also nowhere near heavy enough to mount anything of a decent size. I might just scrap it.
So I am interested as to peoples thoughts about this setup, whether it will take the weight of a 5D3 and the image quality it is capable of.
