Taking photos of the Moon and the Planets
1

Hi All,

Taking into account that I already have a Fuji X 26MP APS-C camera and an Olympus M43 20MP, as well as excellent 1.4x extenders and a very good tripod (Gitzo), what should I buy with a maximum budget of $1000 to take high resolution photos of the Moon, Mars, Venus.....

- Tele lens? What focal?

- Refractor? What diameter? Doublet? Triplet? Apo or not?

- Reflector? What diameter? Which one?

Do I need a mount to compensate Earth's move? What kind of camera adapter? Do I need a 'Field flattener'?

I am 100% novice in astronomy. Thanks.
