Advice for new telescope please

Recommended Posts

Posted a similar thread on imaging forum but realised here would probably be better.

Hopefully getting an EQ3 Pro soon, as a new mount for my little 114mm reflector, however to bring it to focus with DSLR requires barlow, making it an f/8 telescope. :confused:

Looking therefore for a shorter focal length scope (400-600mm) to do some widefield AP with. (M31 springs to mind). Refractor or reflector, but suitable for that mount. Preferably £400-£500 max for the telescope, and any gadgets I'd need like a field reducer-flattener.

Williams Optics Megrez 72 seems to be popular but doesn't seem to be produced anymore. Any alternatives out there? :)
