My main imaging telescope is a carbon tube 8" f/5 newtonian reflector from teleskop-service. Otherwise named UNC 8" f/5. It is specifically chosen for astrophotography. The tube is cut at a specific length so the primary focal plane is at the right spot for use with a camera. The Telescope is usable for visual observing, but only with an extender in the focuser. You can find it [here](

In addition to my main scope, I have an Orion 127mm Maksutov telescope I use when photographing solar system objects like sun, moon, planets. It is not Ideal for astrophotography due to the thick Maksutov miniscus lens, which takes ages to cool down.
