I'm also looking for an ED80 type scope for astro imaging. I have found reading this and other forums to be very beneficial and from what I've read the Megrez 90 APO comes pretty highly regarded, though it's interesting to hear about the requirement for colour correction; being very new to refractors I was unaware of this.

Alex mentioned previously that the Megrez 90 and Meade 5000 were pretty much on par and I was wondering if the Meade needs colour correction also as it is a triplet as opposed to the 90 being a doublet?

I also noticed the Meade only has a single speed focuser compared the double speed of the 90, is this something I should also take into consideration?
