2 questions I guess,
Is a tracking device desirable for the moon?, and
Do you need a tracking device to stop stars "streaking"?

I have seen some great shots of the milkyway here,
Would like to attempt a night star image but I'm not a fan of the "rotating star effect"

I am also concerned about long exposures and possible sensor damage?

I used to have a photographic memory but never got it developed
