The different stages in getting the final image 

During the following pages I hope to give some guidance on what is involved with putting together an astro-image, this will be from setting up the equipment in the first place which will include basic alignment, balancing the system, accurate polar alignment, image acquisition and so forth right up to the finished image.

There will be different methods chosen by different people for different stages so I am going to give a detailed description of what I do with the equipment I have and what works for me. This will be done over a period of time so please come back to check on progress

I hope this information is useful.
