My 13yr old and I normally do DSO imaging. We want to get back to some lunar/planetary visual observing BC we feel our observing has been neglected and sort of taken over by DSO imaging (no surprise there!) So we want a scope that will fulfill a dual roll of 1) planetarty/lunar observing + 2) planetary/lunar imaging as we have never tried this sort of astrophotography.
Our astrophotography mount is an iOptron CEM-60EC so we can carry a heavy payload easily so no issues there.
The 2 I've sort of been considering are these.
Skywatcher 150 Mac Cassagrain
Or possibly something like this Celestron C8-A SCT
Or possibly this? iOPtron 8in RC
I have owned an 8in SCT way way back in the day but have never owned a Mac Cassagrain or a modern newer SCT or an RC. I understand the design difference, but don't really know anything about the image quality difference.
Any recommendations based on real world usage would be much appreciated!
