Triangulum Galaxy

Having tuned up the tracking on the 11" telescope, I thought I would try once again to image the Triangulum Galaxy. It is a large object but very dim. I got 8 successful and reasonably sharp 60sec images.
Stacking them yielded this image.

For simplicity I used the Canon, and had a go at training the mount for Periodic Error Correction, which seems to have helped. I would probably have done better with the ...

Goto Mount For Use In Singapore

Hi guys! Can anyone tell me which goto mounts will work in Singapore? It's latitude is only 1.35 N and is beyond the range of the NEQ6(as far as I can see). Is there a similar mount that will operate there or can the NEQ6 be adapted?

All help appreciated, thanks!

What are peoples thoughts? I am not very knowledgeable about the differences ...

Star Adventurer Mini - issues

Anyone got a Star Adventurer Mini mount? I'm having trouble with the mount's "console" app on my android phone in that it quite regularly refuses to "connect" with the mount despite the phone being connected to the mount's WiFi. I can't decide if it's due to my phone being Android v7.1.2 or another app messing it up. Seems to work fine on my older android v5.1 phone.

Suggestions or success stories about this mount would ...
