I am looking for an affordable (around $500,00) and not so havy (transportation to Brazil is very expensive) GEM mount for astrophotography up to some minutes in prime focus using off-axis and manual guiding. I intend to use it to take some pictures using a VESTA-SC (modified for long exposure webcam). I wish to use an 7" f/7 newtonian for this job.
I know long exposure astrophotography demands heavy and expensive mounts... but they are not viable for me.
Does anyone have any suggestion of how I can accomplish this task ? Is someone comming to visit Brazil soon ?
