I've been after a short focal length refractor for wide field deep space imaging and I have been looking at so many scopes. For a while I have been using standard camera telephoto lenses due to being without a scope for a while.

The RedCat would suit my style of astrophotography more than any other, but I'd like to know if it is worth buying over a similar focal length standard camera lens?

I would go for a DSLR lens at that FL , my shortest refractor is a Televue Pronto  at 480 mm
