I've been doing astronomy for a while now, but my real interest has always been astrophotography, so now I want to get more into that. Currently I have a 6" dob, which allows me to take nice images of the moon and saturn, but that's about it. My real interest lies in DSO's.<br /><br />What I want to know is what is generally the best scope for this kind of photography? I know I will need some kind of EQ mount.<br /><br />Also, if you have any suggestions I would welcome them - preferably I'd like the scope to be portable - the other main drawback to my dob. I found this which looks ok - nice and portable etc, and it's by the same people who made my dob.<br /><br />I dont have a large budget, and I know with a scope of that size the images arent going to be stunning or of a particulaly high quality, but it's something to get me started.<br /><br />Thanks.
