Orion Min-EQ Tabletop Equatorial Mount w/EQ-1M Electronic Drive System

I'm going camping in Cherry Springs, PA this month and really wanted to try my hand at astrophotography. Seeing as I'm almost never around dark skies, I don't want to drop a lot of money- but do want to try taking exposures longer than 30 seconds w/out trails. I was wondering if anyone has tried the Orion Min-EQ Tabletop Equatorial Mount and if it would be good enough for 5-15 minute shots w/up to a 50mm lens?
Or has anyone had success w/ a barn door tracker?
If you've had good results from either the orion or a barn door- could you pretty please post the pics?
