  1. I hope I like it. Dont know if I'll be gutted not having the tracking capability of the EQ mount. I'm the.most indecisive person you could imagine
  2. Well after an unexpected expense I had to hold of buying a scope. In the time I've had to wait I've done further reading and I've decided on the 200p Dob. What eye peices should I buy for good close ups of the moon
  3. Thanks for all the advice. Looks like I'm going to go with 150p as it seems a good all rounder for a beginner.
  4. The 150p now comes with a 1.25/2-inch Crayford focuser from FLO is this a good addition
  5. What's it like for manually tracking an object though I can imagine it to be a bit tricky without any adjustments and just pushing it. Have you ever attached a camera to it.
  6. Would the 150p on the EQ mount be a bad choice. What about on the AZ mount that FLO sell it with.
  7. I was going to get the Dobsonian but I want to start taking photos eventually and apparently they are no good for that
  8. Would these be any good for the skywatcher 150p https://www.bristolcameras.co.uk/p-skywatcher-eyepiece-torch-filter-set-20265-.htm
  9. After a few more hours reading I think I'll go for the sky master expoler 150p and a lenses or 2
  10. Am I right in thinking the 150pl has a better magnification and can see further and more detail of planets and the moon
  11. I'm near the 5 ways. I am leaning towards the 200p dob
  12. Thanks for replys. I've not even seen the 150 dps only the p and pl I'll have a look at that to. For my viewing I'd like to be able to get good close ups of the moon and planets galaxies. I live in liverpool but the it's fairly dark at night where I am I'm not to concerned about size as I will store it in my garage and use it in my garden. I current have a pair of 20x80 celestron binoculars and for some reason I find Orion amazing so if like to get thr best views of that as I can with my cash.
  13. After hours of reading up on what scopento get I thought I'd made my decision. The skywatcher 150pl but now ove seen the 200p dobsonian. Now I'm undecided can any one help with my 2 choices
