  1. Thank you to everyone who helped with this. I have ordered her the following based upon the advice received https://www.firstlightoptics.com/beginner-telescopes/skywatcher-heritage-130p-flextube.html I am looking forward to learning how to use it with her over the coming years
  2. Thanks everyone for your invaluable advice. FLO will definitely be the place that I purchase the scope from, they are based in the same city that I work (Exeter) and I like to buy locally wherever possible. I will digest what everyone says over the rest of the week and probably come back with more questions. Thanks again for the help
  3. Hi ScouseSpaceCadet, I will look into this suggestion more tomorrow, as she is obsessed by the moon this could potentially allow me the budget to buy her extras for looking at the moon
  4. Hi Scitmon, I really worry about these Azimuth mounts as I have no experience with this sort of thing and won't get chance to practice I worry that she will get frustrated when I try to set it up
  5. Hi Dave, That is a really interesting looking telescope. As she is really small for her age it might work brilliantly. I started watching a review on youtube and will hope to finish watching it tomorrow. Thank you
  6. Hi there I am sure that this has been asked countless times, but my 8 year old daughter is after a telescope for Christmas, I have been doing some digging I was thinking about buying her this one Sky-Watcher Skyliner 150P Dobsonian. However as we live right on the edge of Exmoor it seems a shame to buy something so un-portable. The problem I have is I don't want to spend any more on a telescope than the 150P which is my absolute maximum budget (she is only 8 she might well go off astronomy), I don't want anything to complicated because it will be a learning curve for both of us. This whole thing is a bit of a nightmare! so I am hoping that someone can offer a solution
