What scopes do you recommend for planet photography as well as deep space objects? One that can do nicely with both would be ideal. It also needs to be an easily portable setup to get to dark sky areas.

We have Canon EOS Rebel T6 and Canon EOS Rebel T7i that we’d like to attach (at separate times) to the scope to photograph (no special lenses for them at this point…though we do have the Arsenal).

We are just starting out but have set aside $3000 to purchase what we can (that’s not the best budget, we know).

The research I’ve done leans toward recommending APO refractor scopes on EQ motorized mounts, but it looks like these are mostly pictures of DSO so I’m wondering if they do well for planet photography as well.

Also what post production software do you recommend?

Thanks in advance for your help.
