    Hi.. I want to know that what additional equipment you used with this camera? I am going to purchase D550 camera and my purpose is astrophotograhy so will you please give me more details?

    I mean which mount you have used to take such steady shot? I think you can help me and guide me for doing such great photography 🙂

    Ahh, of course, my bad!
    I used a Skywatcher ED120 on a NEQ-6 Pro mount.
    Next to the ED120 I used an ED80 as guidescope, with an Alccd5 monochrome camera for autoguiding.
    I used PHD to autoguide.
    But I don’t have the mount and ED120 anymore, they have been replaced by a Celestron CGE and C9.25 EdgeHD.
    Hopefully I’ll receive the cable I need to connect this mount to my laptop soon, so I can make new photos 🙂
