  1. Reflectors sounded so scary and it did make my searches slightly biased! Then again all the features that are listed on each scope is also somewhat daunting! Haha It's hard not to just rush out and buy one as I've wanted one for such a long time but life and kids got in the way Thank you so much for all your help, I really do appreciate it!! I'll be sure to put the list up so you can all spend my money wisely! Haha
  2. Thank you for taking the time to reply and the recommendation!! I think I'm slowly short listing contenders! Haha
  3. I hope so but it's Devon so a lot of clouds and rain Haha. The patio is straight out of the kitchen door and is roughly 12x10ft and indoor space isn't a problem for storage as my living room is about 21x18ft. So I think the size of the scope is ok? I wouldn't be travelling a huge amount as I don't drive so would be entirely dependant on other's schedules! I've mainly been looking at refractors as I've heard they're less high maintenance? Again, not overly sure on that!
  4. My kitchen door opens onto the patio so no stairs or awkward manoeuvring! Would only have to face a set of stairs if I were to venture out onto Dartmoor or something! Patio is not large but very open and I have a reasonable amount of space for a telescope to be set up A lot of people favouring a Dobsonian, will definitely look into it!! Thank you!
  5. Hi, thanks for replying! I live in a large maisonette above a shop so storage isn't a problem. I have a small rooftop patio but have no table/chairs out there so I'd ideally want a tripod as that's where I'd primarily be using it. However, I live on the edge of Dartmoor so have the opportunity to venture out occasionally (I don't drive so would rely on kindly friends and family! Haha) so being reasonably easy to move about would be handy
  6. Hey, thank you for replying! Glad I was at least looking at decent makes! There are so many out there and it can be very confusing and overwhelming! Haha This is probably a stupid question but is the Dobsonian tabletop only? I don't have a garden only a small rooftop patio with no table/chairs so was counting on a tripod!
  7. I know, I can feel the eye rolls from here! Haha I never thought about secondhand! Will have a scout about thanks for replying!
  8. Hi Stargazers, I realise you guys have probably answered a million of these questions by now but I'm a total noob and don't want to waste money on something that turns out to be a load of rubbish! Haha My budget is around £200 which I realise won't get anything super amazing but I've been looking around and wondered if you'd give an opinion on the following https://www.bresseruk.com/bresser-messier-ar-90-900-nano-az-telescope.html I would love to be able to view the moon in good detail and ideally see Saturn and Jupiter etc. I could upgrade eyepieces as and when funds allow but
