Don't overlook the benefit of the wider ring spacing provided by a
longer mounting plate, even if you stay with the ~150-160MM and the
AP900.

Thank you for the very useful information. I believe you are right
on point regarding the
mount. I don't think that by adding 1 more inch to my normal scope
will do much for CCD
imaging but the mount, clear skys and technique will make a
difference. Perhaps I should
stay with the 150-160mm range. I have to stay portable with my
location.
