I have been involved in amateur astronomy for over 40 years, but am completely new to digital astrophotography. I currently possess an AstroPhysics StarFire 155 and have recently acquired a Losmandy G11 mount. Our plan is to retire to Costa Rica in the next couple of years and with the extra time and different lifestyle, I would like to look into doing some AP. It is possible at some point that I might acquire a second scope, smaller and faster.
I am looking for suggestions and recommendations on cameras to use for this purpose. As I've said, I'm completely new to digital AP and realize there's a lot to it and a lot to learn. I guess the choices are DSLR or dedicated CCD, with lots of variations in each category. Since I'm starting out, I would assume that going the DSLR route is probably the logical choice, and then (possibly) migrating to CCD as skill increases.
I would appreciate any information with regards to both types of cameras, their pros and cons and what features/capabilities/criteria I should think about and look for. The current array of equipment available is overwhelming and I don't know what matters most. Suggestions of useful information sources, online or in print would also be appreciated.
