Best Telescope for Astrophotography
Radian Raptor 61 F/4.5 Imaging APO | Price: $999
Ideal for: Those looking for superior astrophotography performance in a compact package
The Radian Raptor 61 is the ultimate portable astrophotography telescope designed specifically for imaging. The Raptor 61 telescope will not only produce stunning images of deep sky objects, but it is also lightweight enough (4 lbs/1.8 kg) that it can be mounted on a star tracker so that you can take it anywhere. Although this telescope does not come with a mount included like most others on this list, its imaging performance makes up for it. Despite its small size, it can be used with cameras as large as full frame so you can expect sharp stars throughout the image.
