Hyperstar

Looks like this is the way to go.
A bit pricey though.
F2.3 on my 925 SCT no tracking or wedge required.

Trouble is mate once I get something in my head and it looks the bizz. That's it got to get it. Just look at some of the tube vids on hyper star and be blown away by some of the pics. I mean just 30 seconds to take some increadable pics instead of 60 mins plus no need for a eq mount no need for a tracking camera no need for colour filters just get the pest colour camera you can afford and away you go 😃
Oh also might need an autofocus 😱
