    Is the “Astro modded’ referring to something that prevented star-trailing in a long 3 minute exposure like that?

    No mate the scope sits on a tracking mount that followers the stars allowing for a longer exposure.
    The camera is modified to get better Astro photos.

    Which is what I would have thought normally, but seeing reference to "astro modded" instead of that, I didn't know if that was some sort of new high tech feature that somehow produced the same result...good image

    I had the camera modified by Hutech they removed filters and added a drop in HA filter and as you can see it produces amazing images.
