I started with a Canon 600D in my 6 f6 newt and HEQ5 mount nearly 4 years ago.
Progressed to an EQ6-R Mount with an 8 f5 newt still using the Canon 600D about 2 years ago and now recently have a dedicated ZWO OSC cooled camera in both newts
I retired the HEQ5 mount and upgraded to another EQ6-R mount for my 6 f6 newt now
All the above progression in AP over 4 years was thanks to the advice of many folk at IIS including Raymo !!!!
I also have a 12 f5 Goto dob I use for visual work at my dark site
I image in Sydney under Bortle 8 light polluted skies with my 6 f6 and image at my dark site ( weekender) south coast NSW with my 8 f5 newt
I still use the Canon 600D for planetary imaging and occasionally DSO imaging but my new ZWO OSC cooed camera is my main imaging camera now
Im a newt man through and through, they provide the best bang for your buck and are simple to use and maintain plus Im happy with my FOV and image scale ( they are not wide field imagers , Im up fairly close to objects )
Some examples of my latest images using my 6 and 8 newts attached
Cheers
Martin
