The internet is a wonderful resource.
There's almost no subject on which you can't find a plethora of information and opinion.
For every possible argument there's a counter and several tangential debates.
In my on going hunt for the right starter scope I'm finding that every time I make a decision I'm overwhelmed with opposing or differing views.
Every thread opens up some new possibilities and closes others.
24 hours later I read other stuff and make a U turn.
My budget veers hourly between £80 and £800 as I convince myself of the merit of one end of the scale and then change my mind with the merits of the other.
Suffice to say it's all very good fun but means making a decision is almost impossible.
Back when I was young and had hair there was generally (if you were lucky) one magazine that covered your chosen hobby.
They dispensed wisdom which you were expected to slavishly follow and much derision and name calling would ensue if you didn't follow the herd!
My how times have changed.
I'm pretty sure I've decided to go for a small refractor around 80mm for a number of reasons and whilst it won't do everything it'll do most of what I want to start with but if you check back in an hour it'll be a 16" Dob :grin:
