When I'm doing visual observing at a Star Party I like to do some wide field photography with a camera and lens. I recently got a Canon 200mm F2.8L lens, I tried it out at Okie-tex this year but the mount I currently use, (I think its an Orion Astroview, see picture) couldn't give round stars at 120 seconds at 200mm. I want to keep it as small and light as possible, but I don't want to mess with guiding. I know there are some camera tracker options but I wouldn't mine having a small mount that will work with a small scope as well. Thanks!
