    Hi Thomas – Welcome to the Flamsteed! Hope that your twins enjoyed Venus viewing with the Great Equatorial Telescope last summer.

    Thanks for your note – the idea of using an existing mount and adding a motor as you have done is a good one and something that I have considered. My mount, however, weighs a ton so it’s not very portable for use when out and about (which is the solution that I was looking for). Really want to explore night sky landscape photography.

    Thanks very much for your kind offer to allow me to try out your Nikon lens. That’s incredibly kind – may have to take you up on your kind offer one day!

    14mm is really wide – the moon is about 60° over the horizon, so the picture reaches from the horizon well over the zenith. Scorpio is visible just underneeth the moon.

    No milky way I am afraid – Singapore must have invented the word light polution. They even have these beams of light from the skyscrapers just for decoration…
