Stability of the mount has not been too much of an issue as far as wavery images go.That was something I wondered about. You'd think they wouldn't sell you a mount that wasn't steady for the particular scope, so I'm glad to hear it's okay. I have yet to try photography with it. I'm anticipating not being able to do really long exposures, due to instability and the clock drive probably not being accurate enough. I do plan to try some lunar and planetary things.Let us know how it works out whenever you do try it. From what I've read, you probably need to perform some manual adjustments on really long exposures, by keeping a "guide star" centered.Also, I've read that the actual focusing point of some Newtonians do not extend outward enough to reach the camera's film plane. I don't believe that will be an issue with the SkyView, but please let us know that as well.Thanks,orangeblood
