  8. Hi yep I would agree with oldpink, I have the same rig and can get Saturn fairly good, at least able to see the gas bands and moons, I think a lot depends on your light quality also, try some clubs and experiment with various scopes before commiting to purchase, I originally got a celestron 114lcm and upgraded to an 8inch skywatcher, much better views gut price goes up also, good luck, and enjoy.
  9. Hi Andy, Dont know too much about the dobs but recently got a skywatcher 200p/1000 with an eq5 mount, your right it is a bit of a beast but once you get it set up a few times its quite a [removed word] cat, I have upgraded from a 114/1000 celestron, and am loving the skywatcher, had to collimate formthe frst time and even this was fairly straight forward, hope this helps, happy gazing. Jamie56
  10. Hi Rob, I.am a newby also, and new scope out the box was found to be needing collimation, try this first, I have seen Jupiter several times now and allthough light polution was present the view was still enjoyable, happy gazing and good luck Jamie56
