first refractor?

Recommended Posts

hi guys i'm looking to make my first refractor purchase and was wondering what you guys would recommend.i'm looking for quality of image rather than aperture as i'd like to use it to begin imaging as well.

We do need some more information - there is such a huge range of refractors and prices available !.

If image quality is your primary goal then one of the ED doublets or even a triplet will achieve that but the price is high.

Unless you're looking to buy a used scope, that amount of money would not be enough to but a scope good enough for imaging. I'm assuming you already have a motorised mount for it to sit on to help with this? Scopes that are fine for observational work are not necessarily the same quality of scope that is required for imaging.
