Thankyou for all your replies. You certainly made me think how my son would first use his telescope. ive watched So many videos on so many scopes past few days. Now I need help on which quality eye piece to purchase. And do all eye pieces fit all scopes are they all a standard size & fitting? Will he need filters too To start he will view from his bedroom window, but judging from all the research I’ve done he’ll soon be outside I’ve decided to spend a bit more and invest in a goto telescope that has a Wi-fi link to a iPad app. I know you may frown on this, but I’m sure also you’ll understand that a 15yr old uses a lot of internet tools. I decided that a app with info at his fingertips, on whichever object he tries to view would suit his thirst for Knowledge. SkyWatcher star discovery p150i Wi-fi telescope is what I think will suit him. But which quality eye piece should I buy with it? Thankyou so much
My son has said he would love to look at the stars and planets. ive looked at local sales but not sure which would be best for him to see planets & stars any advice would be greatly appreciated £200 budget and happy to buy secondhand to get him a telescope with stronger focus. 2 for sale locally that look good but I know nothing !!
