I daven Nusach Ashkenaz but I often daven mincha in minyanim with a different nuasach. Should I say my ashekanzi tachanun or is there a minhag ha'mokom? Moreover I have noticed sefardim davening their own tachanun in my ashekanzi minyan. If I can get Halachic sources that would be great!

Are you asking about the text you should recite or the posture you should assume? –  Double AA Nov 19 '13 at 17:36

@double :) good question –  MoriDoweedhYaa3qob Nov 19 '13 at 18:53
If you are already davening with a different nusach than the minyan why should tachanun specifically be like the minyan and not just your nusach? –  yid Nov 19 '13 at 22:22
