  1. Thanks again Food for thought looks like choice between ED refractor and 200p. In terms of focal length and does an extra 200 mm make much difference in magnification . Have noticed many scopes in the price range I'm looking at are between 1000- 1200. At a matter of interest does anyone have any images i can see taken with 200p/EQ6 and/or ED refractor scope? Cheers
  2. Thanks all. Useful feedback and nice photos. To add to a few of the points raised have been inspired to get into this through night photography having photographed the northern lights last Xmas in Lapland and have always had some interest in astronomy. I'm fairly proficient on the photo side but completely new on the telescopic front. So my intention is to get the best possible solution for both imaging and viewing. What would be the minimum budget realistically to satisfy both aspects, £750 sounds too low unless I purchase EQ6 mount is it?? Maybe I can't have my cake and eat it unless I go well over £1k? or just have to compromise which is the priority viewing or photographing. All suggestions of other equipment options welcome.

  4. I'm looking to purchase one of these scopes mentioned for stargazing and astrophotography. What is the best option for maximum detail in the sky and magnification. I am interested in viewing all aspects of astronomy - planets, stars etc. I have a budget of £750. I have a digital camera EOS 5D canon to attach to the telescope. Which option would also give the best image quality with this camera? Are there any other options that you recommend? Thanks
