With my main imaging camera away for repair I am only able to use my unmodified Canon 1000D.

C: Canon 1000D unmodified
G: SW finder scope + SX Lodestar
M: NEQ6Pro + EQMod
Software ...
Capture: Canon Utilities
Guiding : PHD (despite my previous aversion to this, it worked well)
Process: Astroart, CS2 & Pixinsight
