    @Tyler I don't really know much about astrophotography except that the picture above are 50 frames stacked. I used an app called DeepSkyStacker for that. When it comes to you telescope you mentioned i honestly can't really say much about it as I'm only familiar with dobsonian reflector telescopes and maksutovs. Because of this my opinion might be a bit biased. If you wan't to get started into astronomy I would recommend you get a 6inch or even an 8 inch dobsonian telescope (if you have space) as this will not only limit you to photography, but enjoying the pure night sky through an eye piece. The focal length of these telescopes let you see deep sky objects like nebulas or galaxies providede there is little light polution. In addition, these telescopes are also very good for planetary observation. As for the price, a 6 inch dob would be around 250-300$ range compared to other more expensive photographic objectives. Once you have started to get familiar with this telescope you can purchase a mount and simply attatch a DSLR or if u want a digital small camera that hooks to your computer. This is important as when taking images the scope must be perfectly still. No matter what device you buy you will need some sort of tracking device if you are taking images with any sort of magnification and long exposure. These are some images using a 8 and 6inch Dob telescope (some images are stacked): Basically I would recommend you get a 8inch Dobsonian Reflector to get the most use out of your money.

    @Tyler I don't have a good camera of any sort (my phone) but this is the best I managed to get with my little reflector telescope : I assume you already have a telescope with a decent aperature ( at least 6 inch) if you want to capture deep space objects such as nebulas or clusters and a decent focal length. If you are using a camera you might get some pretty images of the milky way. If you want to capture images such as the one from andromeda you will need at least 150x magnification and a large aperature to be able to get as much light as possible into the photo. Apart from that, enhancing the image is most of the time required if you want it to look extra pretty. I personally have a 4inch mak telescope and unless i am in a completely non light polluted place, i can forget about anything that isn't planets or big star clusters. Finally, if you take images of deep space objects with high magnification you will need to take into account the earth's rotation. If you manually aim the scope you will probably have a few seconds of image which isn't enough for long exposure images. That is why you will probably also have to look into a mount with computerized tracking to help you stay on the image. Hope this helped.
