My observation is that a range of equipment could be rated and held as a sticky in the forum. I wonder if people are aware of what is available.

More people find it easier to go wide angle - the gear can be less expensive (effective, lower quality etc) or you can go to a RASA or Takahashi Epsilon 160 astrograph.

The more magnification you use the better tracking and seeing and optics and etc need to be, up to the level of Hubble space telescope. It gets harder so at that point forgo acquisition of data and just download the Hubble ST data sets and do the processing and post processing. I am seriously thinking of doing that. Maybe that way of thinking is proportional to time spent playing with telescopes of high magnification ie. f9 and higher?
