Hi,

I have been using a barn-door tracker for 50 mm or less lenses with mirrorless camera so far, but I found that it's no good for 200 mm lens. So I am considering buying ioptron skytracker pro, but I am not sure if it will work well with 200 mm lens without counter weight. Do you have any experiences or thoughts with this? Any advice or comment will be appreciated!

Hi There,

I have had some success with the ioptron skyguider paired with my d810 and tamron 150-600. Set-up can be very touchy with a heavy combo. Here is a single 77 exposure of andromeda at 400mm from last year.

Wow that is very impressive. With such long and heavy lens too!
