I have been using my Canon DSLR 5D Mark III with a 100-400 L Lens mounted on a Orion Atlas-Pro AZ-EQ-G mount for astrophotography of stuff like Orion nebula and Andromeda galaxy but now it is time to purchase a scope.
I had been thinking of refractor APO Triplet but it seems that a lot of people are having good luck with Newtonian scopes like the Orion 8" f/3.9 Newtonian Astrograph. I would be doing strictly astrophotography, guided, BackyardEOS and PHD. Any thoughts on what might be a good scope?
I would start with the scope, Canon camera body, mount. Then add guide scope. Then replace the Canon body with CCD. That is the plan anyway.
Howdy, all. I am in the process of searching for my first telescope. I am looking for something that is great for both planetary gazing and stargazing. I live in an area that has light to medium light pollution, but have access to foothills and mountains, only a couple hours away. So, I am looking for something that is semi portable, yet still big enough to have a good fov. Most of the viewing would be done from the back yard, however. I do plan on doing AP in the future, but just looking or a gazer at the moment. I have read a lot of good reviews on the skyliner 200p, but was just wondering if there are any that are comparable in quality for a tad less. the 200p is about $400 US, which is about the top of my price range. Thanks in advance, everyone.
