Seeing dso's at the eyepiece is thrilling but I have always wanted more. Buy all accounts observing with a video camera and a small monitor will be great.

I took note of your gear. What telescope do you plan on using for video? Possibly a new purchase is upcoming.
Probably an Advance DX for the mount and I'm, trying to decide between a Skywatcher 8" F4 CF newt or a C8. Both of which the Advance DX can handle weight wise with ease. Might even grab one of the Skywatcher stand-alone auto guider units and make a finder-guider with a leftover Stellarvue 60mm finder I'm not using. Reviews suggest it seems to work.

Only just got a new job after 14 months not working. Will need to save up some money before I even consider another hefty astro purchase.
