COMPOSE AND FOCUS
Let’s start thinking about composing the shot. If you’re imaging a specific feature, consider how you’re going to present it. Do you need to rotate the camera to fit in all the features you want to capture? If you do, note the alignment of the field of view with respect to the directions your mount moves, just in case you need to tweak the tracking while imaging. Once you’ve decided on the composition, lock the camera in place and confirm the image is in focus.
