  1. Hi,

    Well, all three of those have the same aperture, so in terms of bang for buck I suppose the first one is best. However, I'd find it difficult to recommend any of them. It may be better to save up a bit longer and go for something like a Skywatcher 130P, which is a great starter scope for visual astronomy and will allow you to see a lot more than the 'scopes with 76mm aperture. The cheapest way to get hold of those optics is with the dobsonian: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/reflectors/skywatcher-heritage-130p-flextube.html

    Edit: Or, look second-hand. Most of my kit is second hand and I highly recommend the used market.

    I hope that helps,

    Definitely try clearing your calibration data in PHD after you've set up.

    Also, check you haven't accidentally reduced your mount's guide rate - it looks like the commands can't keep up with the alignment error or aren't getting through at all.
