Hey Robert! Hope every is going well.

As Bob already pointed out...

Since I'm doing astrophotography, and I am moving on to DSO which require longer exposures, the lack of a wedge would require rotating some of the images before stacking them. It's entirely possible that the field might rotate enough during a single image to introduce star trails.


So, I can start out w/o the wedge to become familiar with the scope...shoot the moon and planets. However, sooner or later (probably sooner) I'll need to add the wedge.

Clear skies!

Forrest
