I thought using tri-color film AP might render colors equivalent to digital, but much cheaper than a mono CMOS camera? If this is not practical, how does color film AP compare to digital? Is there any advantage?

For me film is an expressive art form that I choose to do because I like it..

With film I don't have to do image manipulation, it is more of a what I capture is what I get type of image.

There are infinite discussions on this topic (totally boring for me after the years). One recent at this forum:

https://www.cloudyni...m-over-digital/

Briefly, film is less sensitive, captures less detail with the same lens/telescope. Film images are nicer to look at for bright targets/widefield images/startrails (my personal taste). The other sort of targets, i.e. long telescope shots of nebulas/clusters/galaxies/planets, are rather a job for digital sensors.
