What do you intend to Image with the scope Gino.?

Orion have a reputation for good optics, and I'm sure the mount is excellent too, but I am a bit surprised at the ratio of f8. Do you not think a faster system would have suited more for DSO's?

Perhaps your main targets are the moon and planets.


Sorry Gino. Just realised your instrument is an Astrograph, which is well suited to astrophotography.

Will give a nice flat field, and with a reducer too, it will be superb.
