  1. Hi all, I am planning to buy a telescope for my daughter. My budget is up to €250. I need an entry level telescope to see the moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. I would like also to see close galaxies and nebulae. Of course I do not expect to see HD images as stated here: What Can I Expect to See....? I have chosen to buy a refractor as I don’t want to waste time aligning mirrors on a Reflector. (Suggestions will be appreciated) I have also chosen the Equatorial mount so I will be able to attach a motor drive. (Suggestions will be appreciated) I have narrowed my choice to these three models: Celestron Telescope AC 90/1000 Astromaster 90 CG-3 Skywatcher Telescope AC 90/900 EvoStar EQ-2 Meade Telescope AC 90/900 Polaris EQ All of them are on the same range and are similar. Which one will be better in terms of quality? Which one comes with better accessories in the package? Which one is easier for finding accessories?
  2. Hi all, I have the same question over the https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/celestron-telescope-ac-90-1000-astromaster-90-cg-3/p,7891 and https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/skywatcher-telescope-ac-90-900-evostar-eq-2/p,5002#tab_bar_1_select and https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/meade-telescope-ac-90-900-polaris-eq/p,51482#tab_bar_1_select This will be first telescope. I would use it for planets mainly, then galaxy and clouds. is there a big difference between f10 and f11? skywatcher comes with Barlow lens.
