I am going to buy Celestron 11 ‘RASA, who can provide images taken by RASA for reference? I am ready to buy GSO RC12 '' or RASA 11 '',Very hesitant, one is F2.2, GSO RC can only reach F6

Have you searched Astrobin, you should find many? I use the 11” RASA, I have a few pix posted here. 
 

im assuming you know the the RASA is only 620mm vs ~2400mm of the GSO? You should narrow down what you are trying to image.

Those are two completely different scopes for completely different purposes.   If you don't care about the object/subject and just want fast, "successful" images, then get the RASA.   If you want high detailed images of things like galaxies, then get the GSO.

BTW, here are a few images I've taken with a 11" RASA and Nikon D810a.   These won't tell you much other than the FOV you'll achieve with a full-frame sensor.
