=== DSOs above $2000 === ----This is around the price point at which we can't really give recommendations. You could go almost any route from here both mount and OTA-wise, anything from an Orion Atlas to a Paramount ME, a bigger astrograph newtonian to a richey-chretain. If you're considering spending this much we'll assume you know what you're doing :). Realistic future upgrades could include: * A mono CMOS/CCD and filter wheel for monochrome, low-noise imaging. * Astro-modifying your DSLR to capture hydrogen-alpha. * Hypertuning your mount to reduce periodic error. * Proper processing software - PixInsight is the gold standard for DSOs. * A bigger guidescope. * A better guidecamera and off-axis guiding. * Light pollution filters. A very common mono starter camera is the ASI 1600mm-cool or Pro, these are cooled and are the main imaging camera of many.
