Thanks again for the replies very helpful. I suppose "eyeball" observing will be our primary concern here. I was thinking about attaching a phone as well, are there any recommendations for mounts? Also any thoughts on the skywatcher skyliner 150?
Thanks for your replies. I will probably get the heritage 150p. My son will love looking through it, he has been watching The Planets on repeat. Am I right in saying that a tracking scope costs a lot more and takes time to set up?
Hi, I have wanted to buy a telescope for a while now. I am unsure about my first telescope, originally I was considering a sky watcher heritage 130p. I have also noticed a 150p version is now available. My budget is around £200 at the moment. I have to consider the fact that my 5 year old son wants to look at planets, he is interested in space. Also I am interesting in photographing objects, can I do this with a dobsonian? (I have a DSLR). I like the dobsonian design as it is simple to use, so I can quickly go outside and observe something.
