Re: Before and After?

Thanks. Its a Sky Watcher AZ-EQ6. Because I hadn't used it for over a year I just let the mount itself do the tracking last night. Normally, I would use guiding which means you can do much longer exposures and still have round stars.

Without guiding you are at the mercy of the mounts internal tracking and the challenge of getting your Polar Alignment as good as possible. That has recently become a lot easier since Sharpcap introduced a new polar align feature in their software which works amazingly well.
