PointingPosted by Daddy-o Mon, September 30, 2013 16:13:44
For a very light, DSLR-based system, this is a thought:

How would the mount swing back for start of observations?

It is controllable from various planetarium software packages.

How would it point fine enough?
With a large enough field it would not matter - provided the necessary detail on the DS was observable - perhaps worth a study of the tradeoffs between field size, pixel size and SNR?
