I have a Borg ED f/4 that is convertible to an f/6.4. I used this with a 6x7 film vacuum back for many years for photography and then for a time with a cooled CCD astro-camera. I find the whole digital astrophotography thing a bit cumbersome, too many cables and too much software. But I have my home observatory in a suburban location and thought this refractor might be nice to use for viewing, especially in the f/6.4 640mm configuration (though I need an adapter that I'm looking for to use the f/6.4 configuration with eyepieces, so I posted "Wanted" just now in classifieds).
My question: since this wasn't really designed for visual use, it's a bit clumsy. Would I be better off selling this set-up to someone who might use it for photography and then purchase a decent refractor designed for visual use with the money? If so, what size and focal length should I consider? I have a good mount - an AP Mach 1 - but I need to keep in mind that I'm not going to drag this thing to a dark-site so it will be used only in suburban skies.
