I am looking to purchase either an LPI or a DSI to use as an autoguider and a planet imager.
I am aware that the LPI would be better suited as a planet imager, but what would the limitations be on using an LPI as an autoguider (compared with the DSI-C).

Thanks,
Travis

The LPI would be a better Planet imager because of the smaller pixels but isnt as sensitive as the DSI for guiding.
The DSI makes a better autoguider as it is more sensitive.
The DSI is also capable of taking nice planetary images but can also go longer on the exposure to capture DSO's
