I do the majority of my astroimaging from my balcony because I do not yet have a mobile power source for my computerized mount.

Notes: I do my observing and imaging in very unforgiving skies - within the confines of Manhattan. Here are side-by-side images: one of a part of the view from my balcony as Orion sits over midtown Manhattan (taken with my iPhone and the NightCap app), and the other the resulting image of the Orion Nebula (M42). Enjoy! :D
