I should have used the 200mm lens....

I needed something portable, so I blew the dust off my Dilworth Relay Cassegrain (remember that?) and put my Canon M6 on the back of it.  Not the best pic but I was pleased to get the Galelean moons with a camera lens.

Strange about the title of your post, as I get the impression that few astronomers, including us lot, take many photos in the 100-300mm focal length range. Mostly because I have not got the dosh for a more expensive set-up, do a lot of photography in that range. I use it often for the Moon and have recorded sunspots. I've caught the phases of Venus and even some albedo features on Mars. As for brighter DSOs, it is my preferred method.
