You might be surprised that you can purchase very high performing astrophotography systems under $2,000.
We are talking systems that perform as well as those as recent as 15 years ago that were $1,000’s more. You can thank in part the CMOS camera technology explosion. Compared to the cost of CCD sensors, CMOS sensers offer similar performance at a much lower price point.
High Point Scientific has put together a nice blog post on specific astrophotography systems under $2,000 that can be purchased as a complete package that allow you to get started right out of the box.
