So I'm looking for the best grab and go planetary viewing (and maybe some DSOs) telescope that is relatively cheap (below 500$) that will also support some Astrophotography. I know the SkyMax 127 is a Maksutov and therefore has a high F number, but I'm okay with that because I'll just pop on a 0.5x focal reducer to bring it down to F/6 (still a bit high though.) With said Grab and Go I'm interested in viewing Saturn and Jupiter with high detail. What do you recommend?
Edit: I need one that'll fit into the Sky Watcher EQ5.
Posting in this forum after too long!
One of the first attempts at taking photos of the moon.
All photos taken using skywatcher 90mm refractor with eq2 mount, Nikon DSLR and 2x Barlow here and there.
Basic editing in cellphone.
Thank you! Suggestions highly appreciated!
Another clear evening on Saturday near Preston, Lancashire. Although, it was pretty cold.
7 shots into this one (plus one dark), stacked within Photoshop and some level adjustments to brighten it up a little.
Camera: Canon 600D
Scope: Skywatcher 127 w/AZ-GTI mount
Shutter speed: 1/400s
