Bobzeg25....do you have the 8" rasa and a qhy168c? Wanna pull trigger but hope my camera will be ok

The scope's not really available yet, although a few have been delivered.

 

Your camera will do fine.  Your image scale will be 2.4, I often image at 2.7, and like the results.  I'm planning on using a tiny pixeled 183, but it's not required.  Just something I want to try.

 

Depending on your skies, you will be shooting hundreds of short exposures.  The brighter your skies, the more subexposures.  It will take time to preprocess and stack them.
