Refractors are better suited for cameras/prime focus. I myself have a Celestron CR-150 HD 6" achromat that I use for astrophotography. The false color of moon shots I fix with either a color filter or use BW film. Planets are harder to do. The Backyard Astronomers Guide by Terrence/Dyer is a very good resource on astrophotography. Piggyback will require guiding and a good polar alignment. Anyway good luck!!
