Without a wedge or HyperStar astrophotography will be very limited.

Thanks Ray, Albert, & Jim.
It's the standard fork mount without a wedge. I know that's less optimal for
astrophotography, but it's what we have - at least until next Christmas. :)

Not sure if this is the right place to send this, but I was having
trouble aligning my family's Celestron 925 CPC well enough to track
for long-exposure astro-photography.
Iâ€™ve looked up guides online and tried everything suggested in them,
from using two star alignment rather than SkyAlign, selecting stars
far apart, and finishing centering only using certain directions. Are
there any things I could be missing or tips that would help it track better?
Suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
