This is a behind-the-scenes look at the latest AstroBackyard Podcast.
Steve Mallia and I discuss using small refractor telescopes for astrophotography and visual observing. I share some of my thoughts on the APO refractors I have used in the past including:
• Explore Scientific ED80
• William Optics Zenithstar 61
• Meade 70mm ED APO Astrograph
My Top 5 Choices: https://astrobackyard.com/beginner-astrophotography-telescope/
I also talk a little bit about the advantages and disadvantages of using a camera lens in place of a telescope.
