Probably not and for two primary reasons. First How it tracks stars and second the design of the scope itself. However it may not be hopeless.
The SynScan uses an Alt-az
mount, meaning that it cannot compensate for field rotation. "Field rotation is the apparent rotation of a celestial object in the field of view of a telescope during the course of the night. All objects in the eyepiece field or on the camera’s image will move in arcs. It’s usually either ignored or not noticed for visual observations, but cannot be ignored for photography." "Because of field rotation, no altazimuth mount is suitable for long-exposure astrophotography. Only a properly polar-aligned equatorial mount will eliminate field rotation."
The scope is described as having a parabolic mirror, which is good, because it reduces optical aberrations/coma
compared with a spherical mirror. If the measured distance from the main mirror to the secondary mirror is close to 500mm, the scope has possibilities. If it is less or if you see a lens between the secondary mirror and the the eyepiece holder, it is unsuited for any sort of imaging. A lens in the path indicates a Bird-Jones design and these seem inferior optically.
The mount itself was not designed for imaging, tracking will not be smooth or accurate.
However there is hope, something that may work for you. First you can try using a cell phone or hand held camera to capture the eyepiece image (eyepiece projection). You can hold the camera or buy an adapter, https://www.celestron.com/products/digi ... -universal
A better way is to get a CMOS
camera made for astronomy and designed to replace the eyepiece or attach with a T adapter. You can buy a good one with a smaller 1/3 sensor such as the 224 (ZWO, Altair, many others) and use either the free software that comes with the camera or the excellent freeware SharpCap,
. SharpCap (and others) has a live stacking feature that stacks successive short exposures (30s or less) greatly reducing noise, increasing detail and compensating for field rotation.
This sort of video or live imaging is very satisfying, and a nice compromise between being at the eyepiece and working for hours to capture and process long exposures. I did this sort of real time imaging with alt az mounts for several years. It is still my preferred way of enjoying astronomy, watching the image as it improves, frame by frame.
One thing that may be helpful, when you have a camera in mind is to visit AstronomyTools and use the field of view page to see the image scale of various targets in any combination of scope and camera.
Here is an image made with a small sensor astro camera and a modified 50mm finder scope. Unguided, 13 exposures at 15s stacked in SharpCap. The FoV
is larger than it would be in the Synscan.
I am not saying that the SynScan 114 is the right choice, only that it may work acceptably with a camera, but acceptably is defined by you.
