  1. Nice breakdown. I guess I assumed on a better model the eyepiece would naturally be alot better. The window you speak about or often lack there of can be frustrating. Ty
  2. Any sales on for this anywhere? Not sure who's reputable with best price delivered could someone help please? Edit: or something similar on here.
  3. So stay with heritage 130p but look at sourcing a shroud or wrap to go around the flexi tube?
  4. Is this better than the explorer 130? When ever I look at the heritage, the explorer also pops up. Will be primarily for looking in our solar system but would be nice to see some spiral galaxies or nebulae on occasion. https://www.jessops.com/p/skywatcher/explorer-130-eq2-telescope-89841?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpp6W19ux2QIVDl4ZCh3fzgqsEAQYAiABEgItpfD_BwE Edit: In the end my son asked for a few large presents that year so we had to compromise on the scope unfortunately
  5. Looking at getting another telescope for daughter. Does this advice still hold or has the market moved on and something newer and better is available for a similar price point?
  6. Are these books relatively cheap and child friendly (lots of pics not words)
  7. Mats looks a little earth like actually
  8. I'll have to wait and see how the 29th goes we have arranged to meet some ppl for a stargazing night. It's difficult decision as I'm trying to understand how much difference the 2 have. but im sure the skywatcher 100p comes with a X2 barlow which doubles viewing power?
  9. Young kids change there interests with the weather but he seem to be enjoying the night sky for a few months now so let's hope
  10. The clarity and colour is what makes it so great. My son looked at it slack jawed lol
  11. For small bins my son had a really good time looking at moon through these. I think a family member has some 10x50 I will try and borrrow
  12. Good view of Mars. The pole looks really clear
  13. That's cool to no can't wait to get views as clear as u got
