  1. Hi thank you everyone for your response! I think I definitely do want the goto option as I believe this will save time looking for objects. I've never used a star map before so I wouldn't know where to start! There are a lot of people suggesting the 8' dob would be the better telescope however I am currently trying to register on astrobuysell to see of that cpc 800 is still available as it seems to be the better than my suggestions and still within budget.

  4. Hi, I've been reading the forums for years now and have finally saved enough money to buy my first telescope! In a ideal world, I would want to be viewing the planets, moon and DSO's however I understand that one telescope doesn't provide the best views of everything so I think I need to find a good balance. Imaging would be bones but not essential, for now at least, and the telescope also needs to be less than 1m in length when packed away as I would want to take it with me when I go on my holidays. My budget is around £1000 which needs to include the telescope, mount a
