  1. looks like its all coming together..!!
  2. I'm following this eagerly...good luck with the build..!!
  3. I think your future scope + imaging gear will be the deciding factor... Buy the BEST mount you can afford..
  4. I am looking at Maede and Celestron SCTs in the 10-12" range...and there are pretty good deals on USED Maedes out there...but I am concerned about parts etc..
  5. Hi all.. Is it wise to stay away from a Maede telescope purchase, because of the on going financial issues they are having? Or is it business as usual? I keep reading on CN forums that Meade is in financial trouble, and was wondering if it would be wise to invest in a Meade SCT, especially that it might need service, parts etc in a few years? Any thoughts?
  6. Hi Any CPC 1100 owners out there have the original foam & packaging they want to get rid of? Happy to pay for shipping. I'm based in London. Thanks

    Hello everyone!!

    Good Day everyone... I've been wanting to get a telescope for a very long time, but never got around to it. I have been reading about astronomy for ages though, and have used binoculars for a long time, and also had a refractor for quite a while, which I had borrowed from a friend quiet a few years back. Anyways...I am now seriously considering buying one...why now...? My 5 year old of course!! She is VERY interested in photography..for some strange reason...and takes pictures of everything..every where we go.. I've given her my point n shoot after getting a DSLR...and she uses it all the time... Of course...many pics are unusable...but quiet a few are really nice!! Any ways...All the best...and beware of a FLOOD of questions!!!
