This was a test to see if my Atlas EQ-G could handle my 10 inch Newtonian for guided imaging. I managed to get about 1 hour of data consisting of 1 minute exposures. There was minor trailing of the stars which I fixed in Photoshop. Considering I had 50+ pounds of equipment on a mount rated for 40 pounds it did quite well!
