David I have tried my best to explain to you in simple terms what I have learnt over the past 20 years starting out as a visual observer, CCD imager and finally ending up the pass 6 years observing with a video camera. I really see no point going forward with this discussion since your mind is set and it is just a waste of time. I really cannot see how you can state these facts regarding "video/aperture" since you have not even used an astro video camera.

BTW - those images that Jack is showing you are captured at Chiefland which is Florida's dark sky location. Dark skies are another equation but we won't get into that right now :)

I will have a roll-off permanent observatory. It will be remote controlled :cool:

How well will a AT65EDQ 65mm f/6.5 ED quadruplet work compare to the Meade Series 6000 80mm f/6 ED triplet apo? or is the AT65EDQ to small? there was a lot of picture I saw on the web that was great. But they used a DSLR.

Gary the AT65EDQ 65mm f/6.5 ED quadruplet will have a focal length of 423 mm and the Meade Series 6000 80mm f/6 ED triplet apo will have a focal length of 480 mm. Either both scopes will be great for wide field observing with a Mallincam. The AT65EDQ 65mm will have a very slight edge in FOV but the Meade Series 8000 80 mm will be a bit faster. I would go if I had to choose between the two for me it would come down to cost but if they cost almost the same then the Meade Series 6000 80mm f/6 ED would be my choice.

I am close to you in Toledo. Send me a PM. I have used a MC with similar scopes as you originally asked about.
