Quote:Patience... people will respond in time. But FYI, you might want to narrow the field a bit, what are your interests in AP? DSO, planetary, wide field... that sort of thing.
Quote:Depending on the focal length, another idea would be to get a lens instead of a refractor if it's for astrophotography only... I know I wouldn't mind a Leica APO Telyt 180 f/3.4 or the Nikon 180 f/2.8 ED AIS, but you seem to want something longer?P.
