Small refractor to begin imaging

Postby davetee » Sat Apr 15, 2017 12:14 pm

I'm looking to begin imaging but want to learn on something small for nebulae and globs. I was looking at an ES 80mm triplet but for some reason they seem hard to get hold of in the UK. I'm also looking at an Esprit 80 and just wondered what they are like without having a flattener attached. I've heard good things about the ES being round pinpoints edge to edge without a flattener fitted. The focuser may also be a concern as I want to put a DSLR on the end. Anyone have experiences of both of these ota's?
