  1. Hi and welcome from me too. I keep getting tempted by that Open University course, but always think of a bit of kit I could spend the cash on instead. Hope it goes well for you.

    Hi All...

    Hi and welcome from me too. Can't help with the tripod problem, but for eyepieces you could consider getting a set to start off with: Eyepiece Sets The Revelation set seems to get good reviews, and you can always build on your eyepiece set as you go along.
  6. Wow, they're pretty impressive starting shots. I have the same scope, and didn't really think there would be much point trying any sort of imaging, but if you can get shots like that I may have to get myself a webcam too.
  7. Hi and welcome form me too.
  8. Someone more expert will be along shortly I'm sure, but essentially maks like the etx125 are good for viewing planets due to the long focal length but not so good for DSO's for the same reason. This thread is quite useful when thinking about which type of telescope to go for: http://stargazerslounge.com/primers-tutorials/37999-primer-telescope-types.html

    Hello from Wales

    Hi Dave, welcome to the forum. I have the Celestron 15x70's and 25x70's and have always found them great, especially for the money.

    Hello From Spain

    Hi Dave, welcome to the forum.
  12. Wow, Kenya sounds fab, welcome to the forum and the best of luck with the move.
  13. Hi and welcome from me too. Like everyone else has said, the skywatcher range seems to offer the best quality gear for a limited budget. Hope you find the right scope.
  14. Hi, can't help with your query I'm afraid, but I know there's an astro society in Stockton - is that near you?
