Re: 1200 tracking accuracy at 3100mm focal length

Nice images! The picture of M82 has a lot of detail.

I've tried a Nikon teleconverter with my 12.5" f/7 newt on the AP 1200 GTO
mount. It figures out to be 3100mm focal length at f/10 with the
I did some 2 hour exposures of NGC 891 and M-82. Tracking was excellent.
The AP 1200 is certainly up to the difficult task of tracking at long
lengths. See the pics at:
