That is so true. I'm planning on having a Dob reflector for DSO. A cass for planets and DSO. And I'm definitely getting at least two refractors for planet and luner observations. And somewhere down the line, after I have learned more, astrophotography.
I'm trying to keep my eventual final inventory of scopes down to three.
Started with the 6" f8 achro on a goto mount for the bortle 7.5 outer edge of the light dome backyard scope.
So far, this has been a great scope for planets, lunar, and bright stars. And will soon be expanding it's roll to include doubles and open clusters.
Now looking at buying an 80mm ED refractor on a lightweight manual mount for grab and go/quick look/widefield scope.
And will probably eventually replace the old Nexstar 8 I bought while impatiently waiting on the AVX/C6R to show up. Thinkin an 8 or 10 inch solid tube dob for a grab and go to a dark site scope. The C8 just doesn't have the field of view to use without goto that I would want for a travel scope.
Thinkin my "astrophotography" will mostly be limited to snapshots with a phone or pawn shop DSLR. No stacking and photoshopping for me. At least no plans for it.
