I know the answers to this will be varied, but I'm just curious what some of you think.
I'm currently learning to image (mostly long exposure with a DSLR) with a 6" Schmidt Newtonian (FL=700 - f/5).
I can afford to buy a used Meade AR-5 (FL=1143 - f/9) or a new 6" Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain (FL=1500FL - f/10).
Would either/both of these other scopes perform better than my SN?
Would one be better than the other?
I certainly appreciate any thoughts or opinions.
