The tracker seems to work very well I used yesterday.

 

tonight I decided to use my scope instead just to see the difference between the two.

 

tomorrow I am going to take the flat frames and then I can process and play a it on GIMP.

 

I am look forward to post a good Orion Nebula!!

You do know you need to take multiple exposures and stack them together don't you?  Makes for a much cleaner image. 

 

Sorry if I am telling you something you already know.

All done ... You saw the result!

I was thinking something ... if I increase the number of exposures from 30 to 50-60 do I get better definition on my image? And if I use a Barlow lens attached to the draw tube is it better?

Probably best if you tell us your capture details, ISO - exposure length - amount of subs (images).

From what I can see you are using an Alt Az mount so best to not go over maybe 10 to 20 seconds each capture but experiment to see how far you can go before stars start to go out of shape. 

The barlow will make things appear bigger but also even harder to track accurately.

That was my first tentative using a scope .

 

I took 30 no exposure at 2 sec each ISO 800 . Same number and set for the dark frames. The result is the attached picture which I have already posted .

 

obviously is not the best one but I am very happy with that but I want to improve it.

If your mount tracks reasonably well, try longer exposures maybe.

Experiment to find out how long you can go before stars look eggy then back off a bit.

Thanks I will try as soon as I can!
