  1. https://www.amazon.com/Celestron-NexStar-130SLT-Computerized-Telescope/dp/B0007UQNNQ?crid=19RQ7ZNOSIW3O&keywords=telescope+computerized&qid=1533779707&sprefix=telescope+com&sr=8-1-spons&ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa&psc=1 Would this be a functional scope for dso? Could you recommend a scope at a budget of $500
  2. Very new, I only owned a telescope for a month or two on my teens but that's it, I don't even really know my sky all that well, I know a few constellations but that's it i can't navigate the sky at all
  3. It seems that the 8" dob is my best route, but my only difficulties will be manually finding objects, and I'm very inexperienced. I heard that it's possible to install a motor for finding dso' s or something related?
  4. Hello, I'm very new to the practice of astronomy and my interest is with deep sky objects, I very much prefer "goto" type telescopes. Im just looking for a decent set up for visual observations of dso's and I have no idea where to start to look, please help! ( 500$ budget )
