Astrofanatic Imaging Upgrade

Purchased an Orion Starshoot Solitaire autoguider this weekend and a Orion ST80 scope for the guiding. Initial tests are extremely encouraging!! 5 min exposures are no problem for it, i think i could in fact do 10 mins with no issues. Later this week my astro modded Canon 750D will arrive so keep an eye out for a considerable improvement in my images (i hope!)
