Hi all. New to cloudy nights and hoping I can get some direction from you guys. I'm going to be consolidating my starsenal and selling my Zhumell Z12 and Celestron 130SLT and upgrading to the 8" LX90. I've done a decent amount of astrophotography with my current telescopes and a Canon 5D Mark III and a Windows XP-era Celestron NexImage webcam. Budget is kinda tight but I'd like to get an appropriate, but not bank-breaking, guide scope and camera. I've looked at the ZWO ASI120 & 290 with various guide scopes as well as the multitude of off-axis guider options. From what I've been reading, guide cameras with larger sensors are better for off-axis guiders, but may make less of a practical difference when used through a guide scope.
Does anyone have any recommendations for guide setups for this specific scope? I'm still in the early research/planning phase but am already finding myself getting a little overwhelmed with the technical variations out there and how they relate to the specs of the 8" LX90.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
