It all depends on the size of your target.....I use everything from a 50mm camera lens up to my 800mm fl telescope..shooting APS-c.

To frame Andromeda "nicely", on a FF camera like your Sony, you need ~ 600mm, which is well beyond the tracking accuracy of a little Star Adventurer. Andromeda would be a "speck" using a 250mm Redcat on a FF camera.

I beg to differ. this was shot on my Pentax K-1 and Whitecat 51 (same as the Redcat) this was mounted on an Explore Scientific IEXOS-100 and not a star adventurer) I hardly think M31 is a speck in this image, yes it is cropped. But even the full frame isn't bad.
