Does anyone have any images taken with the 12" version of this scope?
I am considering getting one for photography, primarily because of its native f8 design.
But I don't want to get it only to be disappointed with the images it takes
Specifically, I'm looking for an unretouched full frame DSLR image of something I too can take an image of (5-10min exposure iso 1600) during the dark of the moon in Sept.
For comparison against my C11Edge.
My expectations are that the stars will be round to the edges (as advertised, but probably progressively bloated), but with no RGB star separation.
Also, I don't know what to expect regarding vignetting?
Some bloating and vignetting compared to the C11 would be acceptable.
I don't want to purchase Meade's 12" f8 ACF OTA for photography, and have to return it for a 15% restocking charge, to find out the hard way that it is unacceptable.
