I'm looking for a recommendation for a second telescope for astrophotography.
My current equipment is:
• Orion ED80T-CF
• Orion 0.8x focal reducer
• Canon T3i modified
• Orion 50mm guidescope
• ASI120-MM guide cam
• iOption CEM40 mount with iOpron Polar camera
However, my ED80T-CF and mount fell over in a hard wind, when they were under a tarp. I send the telescope to Orion, and they said it couldn't be repaired. So now I'm looking for an upgrade / new telescope.
I'm looking for something with a slightly longer focal distance than the ED80T-CF, but also something faster - f/4 or better. I'm considering switching to a reflector. I chose the ED80T originally to avoid collimation, and it seemed easy to work with.
I know this is fairly broad - but any recommendations are appreciated. I also remember there being a newer type of telescope, which is basically supposed to be a light bucket - it's got a 4 letter acronym, and I can't for the life of me remember. Higher end, more expensive, but smaller while still being very fast.
