Filter Fits Meade

Equipment for astrophotography?

I have the following equipment. Will this get me started with astrophotography?

Meade 80ED
Meade LXD75 Equitorial Mount (not the scope, just the mount)
Meade DSI Pro II Black and White Imager with Color Filters
Dell Inspiron 2200 with Celeron Processor

Also, what would be a good finder scope that will fit on my 80ED? Thanks for all the great help.
I have a Celestron Power Tank, that can give me hours of power. My laptops hard drive has a sufficient amount of storage space. Also, from what I understand, I can autoguide with my DSI, as well as take the photographs. Is that right?

Pretty good start with equipment. Make sure you are not depending on batteries as you only power source. If you are going to do long exposure imaging and "Stacking" of those images, how big is your PC's harddrive?

1. Look into Yahoo Groups. There are a number these groups and some of these folks have experience.

2. Also check out any local astronomy clubs, again there may be some knowledgeable folks.
