Skywatcher 150/1200 f8 planetary Newtonian.
Bought this originally intending to set up a planetary rig but circumstances call for sale.
Will come with eyepieces and a collimation eyepiece. Not used by myself and has seen very little use. Mirrors in good condition
This is the first lights of my ASA 12"N f/3.62 (purchased in 2007) with my Moravian G4-16000 CCD camera using one KAF-16803 chip of 36mm x 36mm (4K x 4K).
The adjustments, collimation, ASA OK3-Z pression screws, asked a lot of attention.
For a precise collimation, i use the CATSEYE XL & XLKP kit.
This is the first 3hrs of exposures taken the last weekend in one night. The second night was too windy unfortunately.

I have a GSO 6" f/4 Astrograph, and there's always been this issue with elongated stars on one edge. I've checked collimation and it is perfect, but for the elongation on one corner. Could someone please throw some light on what's happening
Right now i am imaging with a Star Adventurer and a 300mm telelens on a dslr.
I am planning to upgrade to the eq6-r pro and currently i am searching for a telescope. i want to take pictures of nebulae, galaxies and planets.
My first idea was to get the Skywatcher 250/1200, then i read that it is too big for the eq6, i was recommended a shorter tube like the orion 10" at f/3.9 or a SCT, due to my budget i can't get higher than the edgeHD 8 unfortunately.
what would you recommend? i am also open for different suggestions, thank you :)
