Quote:I just got a new DSLR and I'd really love to try some imaging. I'm really leaning toward the Celestron AVX, but I won't have an OTA for the mount, just the camera to start. However I saw this link AVX and 6" Newt. It doesn't seem like that bad of a deal for only $100 more, but I don't want to throw away that $100 either. Any opinions?
Quote:When the time comes what would be the better option? Newt or refractor?
