  1. I think it's something that a person goes through with any hobby, there's times when I can't be fussed with setting the scope up, I also find that getting together with a group of like minded folk helped to kick start my enthusiasm. Do you have an astronomy group in your area that you could join?
  2. I want a GoTo for the ease of finding elusive DSOs, I also want something fairly portable. Fussy fella aint I!
  3. Hi all, I'm purchasing a new scope in May but I'm not sure which to go with. I've narrowed my options down to one of the following, Skymax 102 SynScan, STARTRAVEL 102 SynScan or NexStar 127 SLT Maksutov. my quandary is which one would be the better purchase for both deep sky and planetary/lunar? I have an ETX-70AT which is great for clusters and does the moon well, but it's not so great for Jupiter and Saturn. All three of the scope options have been chosen due to budget constraints, any advice would be very much appreciated.

    I've had an interest in astronomy since I was very young, I also have an interest in paleontology. I have a meade etx 70 at and a small newtonian reflector. I'm a member of a local atronomy society where I have given a couple of talks. I look forward to chatting with you all.
