Many years ago I visited an open evening at a local club where I saw Saturn and Jupiter up close for the very first time. I was totally in awe and never forgot the images I saw that night.
Don't really know why it took me so long to get around to making a purchase but I guess I just didn't know what to get.....there's so much choice.
I knew that I wanted to take photo's of the Moon etc. and hopefully link it up to the computer.
Yesterday I visited the The International Astronomy Show at the Warwickshire Exhibition Show ground near Leamington Spa and frankly....there WAS so much choice.
After a few hours wandering around from store to store speaking to most of store holders and wandering around some more I finally took the plunge and purchased my first ever telescope the sky-watcher skymax 127.
Hopefully I made the right choice.
