Getting Started: Using an Equatorial Telescope Mount: Everything you need to know for astrophotography or visual use

Many midrange and high end telescopes come on equatorial mounts. These mounts are fantastic for tracking celestial objects. Someone who wanted to take pictures of objects in the night sky might even say they are required for all but the most basic astrophotography. The problem is that they can also be unintuitive and require some knowledge to use. Until now, in order to obtain all the knowledge needed to leverage an equatorial mount to its full potential you would have had to compile information from a variety of sources and attempt to mesh them together. The frustration this could instill might, and indeed has, caused some potential amateur astronomers to give up and pursue other hobbies. With this book you can now assemble, set up, adjust and use your equatorial mount with confidence....
