Re: Astro Photo Question (trying this forum)...

I don’t mean to be facetious, but the answers to your questions are out there in Google land.

Also, as alluded to by the other poster, you can take a series of short exposures using the built in intervalometer, then stack them using software that can do the alignment. You will of course lose some of the sensor area, but you will get better results. Lots of short exposures combined gives you reduced noise and more round stars.

And at the risk of stating the obvious, there are small and fairly cheap driven mounts, though quality varies, so check the reviews. Even with a mount, I believe you are best to stack lots of short exposures,

Hasn’t Starlink destroyed the night sky?
