I'm trying to figure out which scope to buy the Nextstar 8i or the Advanced Series C8-SGT. They are both the same price. I'm interested in doing digital astrophotography with a Cannon S45 (non-slr) and Sony Digital Camcorder.

I'm also interested in using higher power eyepieces.

Which has the best tracking of the two ?

Anyone have any websites showing photos with these scopes ?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
