C8 EHD - E80 guiding config

Description

This is a picture of my eqipment setup I used in April 2014 to take my NGC4565 photo.
The equipement icludes :
- NEQ6 mount
- C8 EdgeHD telescope
- 0.7x focal reducer
- QHY8L CCD camera
- Sky Watcher ED80 as guiding scope
- Orion StarShooter camera for guiding
- Orion X-Y Guide Star Finder

With this configuration, there was too much differential flexure and stars become elongated with subexposure above 1 or 2 mn !
I eventually found that most of the flexure originated from the Orion X-Y Guide Star Finder, I have removed it from this type of arrangment now.
