  1. Hi guys...Just joined SGL 2 days ago,,,what a great and informative place to be:icon_salut:

    I have ordered my new skymax 127 and im like a child on christmas eve...REALY EXCITED..It should be here by Tuesday:)

    I have had a couple of WOW experiences with an old tasco 3 inch(dont have it any more),although a cheaper option I still got the wow effect from seeing the moon/saturn for the first time...

    Seeing Nebula and Galaxys will be a new thing for me...

    Im sure there are alot of beautiful sights up there for me to see with the skymax..

    Which object would you recomend for my next WOW?

  3. You will only need tracking on a Dob if you want to photograph the Moon & Planets. Otherwise it's pretty easy tracking stuff with a Dob.

    If a Dob was your first choice, I'd say go for it, no need for tracking.

    Have a look at this: http://stargazerslounge.com/equipment-reviews/132996-skywatcher-skyliner-200p-8-dob.html

    Excellent informative review on the Dob OTH:.....Infact its maybe too good...Almost had my mind made up on the skymak 127...Now its a toss of a coin!....Aperture vs ease of use..:)


  4. Thanks for the help...Im almost there!...Im not into astrophotography as yet ,so thats not a factor at all..I think if I can get good views of the moon,planets,and some of the brighter DSOs I will go for the 127...

    In a few years time ,if I have both the 127 and 8"Dob I will be prety much well set up for most of what the heavens have to offer??


  5. Please help..I need some advice on deciding which telescope to buy.My budget is around 300stg.Ive had my eye on the skywatcher mak 127 auto track....

    I have read a few reviews on the 127 but im still not sure if its right for me..I am prity much a beginner, but I do own a terrible, budget refractor..My main aim is good views of the moon and planets for now....Once i,ve done my time with that I will start hunting the deep sky.

    Is there such a thing as a good alrounder for 300stg?

    Would the 127 be a good scope for keeps?
