I am currently in the market for getting a new telescope, as I have outgrown my current one (celestron 130eq). I own a DSLR camera already and have been experimenting with some astrophotography (first stage of getting addicted). Over the last few months I have now developed an urge to purchase a telescope that will allow me to take semi-decent deep space photos (Second stage of addition). The crux: I have a fairly limited budged, of around $ 1,000-$1,500 AUD, but I can't seem to find one that fits within the scope (pun not intended) of astrophotography. After doing some research, it seems that the ED80 is a great option, however, I can't find a EQ mount that will not exceed the limits of my budget. If anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.
Disclaimer: I already have a DSLR and T-ring (not included in the budget).

Hi everyone I am planning to buy the explorer scientific ED140 FPL53 140mm f/6.5 . But can't find enough review or image captured by it. I am planning to use it with the ZWOASI 294MC PRO and the ioptron cem60 mount. Plz can you guys tell me if this is a good setup to go with and if possible plz. Plz send me photos captured using that scope.
Thanks in advance.
I wanted to reach out to everyone here for some advice. I currently have a Tele Vue Nagler 4 17mm, viewing on a Celestron Nexstar 8SE, and am interested in an EP with a longer focal length. I really like the 82 degree AFOV, so I was immediately eyeballing the Nagler 4 22mm or Nagler 5 31mm. And this is where my problem is... which one do I choose if money isn’t a factor? I have reviewed the specs between the two, but without trying them out, I can’t visualize which would work out the best. Is going 31mm too much of a leap from 17mm?
Hi, i have made a video where i show a coople of eyepieces that i use and like, and also show how a barlow works, compared to the "Powermate" from Televue. And how is the FOV affected when changing the magnification with different eyepieces?
Feel free to comment and give me feedback - I hope you like the video!
