  1. I know technically binoculars make more sense... that's why I'm seriously considering it. It's just, telescopes are so cool! What would be the mimimum you'd want to spend on a pair? I googled the brand you mentioned and there was quite a price range... "My first telescope was a Sky-Watcher Mercury707 (I still use it). It's a great little refractor so long as you look after it. I love it! I'm not saying there isn't better out there for your price range but if your on a tight budget this may leave you with enough for accessories. " It does look good!

  2. Wow! You've all been so helpful! The post where you directed me to "what you should expect to see" was very eye-opening and so useful. In fact everything has been really useful!

Thank you for trying to help though!
  4. Hello, I really need some help. I don't understand the latest technology never mind all this jargon related to telescopes. So what I'm asking for is for one of you lovley people to tell me in simple terms, which telescope to buy. It's a christmas present for my boyfriend, I'm looking to spend between £90-£130.
