Thanks I am hoping to purchase a skywatcher esprit 80 ato later this year with zwo cameras and get right into astro photography
I cant wait I have perfect dark.sky about 40 kilometers away
I also just bought a pair of celstron 15 x70 binoculars. I still can't believe how handy they are especially for the price

Perhaps be a little cautious about buying everything at once - there's a lot to learn.
If you already have a dslr learn to use the mount properly, get guiding set up, learn some basic processing, then add fancy cameras. Doing it all at once can be overwhelming.

Thanks guys . I don't have dslr only been using my samsung s9 for photos of the.moon as i only have a 12inch dobsonian which is only really for visual . I know it will be a big learning curb, but wife has approved a one off purchase, silly girl And iceinspace looks like a good place to gain knowledge .
