Celestron 8SE with some eyepieces. Neximage 5 Unmodded T2i/550D Orion Sirius EQ-G
Quote:Just starting out I'd opt for the old Neximage used. Cheap and easy to learn on. If you enjoy the process then there are better choices available other than the Neximage 5 for not a whole lot more dough. I've got both and can't recommend the 5.That said, your seeing will be the final determining factor in the quality of your photos. One night of great seeing throws all the "what am I doing wrongs" right out the window.
