Hi Tareq,
I’ve been imaging with a GSO 6” f6 newt and a GSO 8” f5 newt for some time now just using a 9 year old Canon 600D APS-C sensor and can image most objects in the night sky ( excluding wide field Nebula )
I also do planetary imaging with the same scopes using BYEOS and Televue powermates with my DSLR

I don’t know what all the fuss is about
6” f6 newt cost me $299
8” f5 newt cost me $470
Canon 600D was my wife’s old camera which she never used
I use low end Skywatcher HEQ5 and EQ6-R mounts
PHD2 guiding
Collimation is really easy after you have done it a few times ( takes 5 minutes )
Image scale is around 0.80 arc sec per pixel
Here are just some objects I can fit in my FOV with both scopes -
M42 Orion
Lagoon Nebula
Trifold Nebula
60% Carina Nebula
Omega Nebula
Tarantula Nebula
All globular clusters obviously
Rosette Nebula
Jewel box
All galaxies
Most open clusters
And the list goes on and on

Here are some of my images with these newts in both Bortle 8 and Bortle 3 skies
I also have a 12” Goto dob newt for observing
Hope this information helps you in some way
Martin
