I am new to astrophotography, I have ha d a passion for photography and space since I was a child, and now finally find myself with the time and income to support a hobby I have always wanted to start, and share it with my kids. I have been doing a lot of research and have been putting a few different builds together but I figured it would be a good idea to reach out to the community and get some input before I pull the trigger on any purchases. Thank you in advance for anyone willing to help a newbie out!
Below is the equipment I have in mind certainly open to any suggestion and feedback for any other recommended products.
Mount: SKY-WATCHER EQ6-R PRO EQUATORIAL GO-TO MOUNT - $1,595
Telescope: SKY-WATCHER 100MM ESPRIT ED TRIPLET APO REFRACTOR - $2,499
Camera: SKY-WATCHER STARLIGHT XPRESS TRIUS SX-42 MONOCHROME CAMERA KIT - $3,595.00
I also own a Sony A7RIII That I was debating using as the camera to start off with, and perhaps getting a more expensive mount for future upgrade potential. Sadly I cant find any sony adapters in stock anywhere, I would have to use a canon adapter and then a canon-sky-watcher adapter.
Guide lens and camera - still needing recommendation
I know the mount is an extremely important piece, so any input on the mount would be greatly appreciated.
