LOL! a 5" refractor is several thousand dollars, and the RA drive another grand, perhaps a field flattener to do photography properly. In terms of refractors, 5" is about as large as they come without a divorce being necessary.

Just need to get as creative with your approach to that issue as you do with your photography. Couple of examples:

1) Well our grand daughters are really interested in the stars and astrophotography so I need this for them

or, my personal favourite:

2) Don't say anything and get it. When it is discovered and the inevitable . . ."hey what is that? Is it new" happens, the clear response is "what this old thing??!!"

Nice shots guys. I am in the process of getting back into night sky photography. Used to do a lot of it when I was a kid . . .and my grand daughters really are interested.
