  1. I just pressed the buy button! Bought though FLO a Bresser Messier 6" Planetary Dobsonian + BST 8mm. it is supposed to be delivered within a few days and i hope it will keep (mainly) my daughter interested into space! Cannot wait to get our first telescope! Thank you all for your help and advice.....the real research is about to start
  2. We are not that far away from each other - i live in Northampton! As i have a specific budget (£300) that i wouldn't want to surpass right now - unless for £30-£40 more i could get significant better visuals. I would either go for something like the Zhumell and spend another £60-£70 for eyepieces or i would go for something like 6" Dob Bresser (with no further investment on accessories wight now) that will use all my budget! This is what i'm thinking tbh.

  5. Good afternoon to everyone, I am new to astronomy and with my daughter (11 yrs old - very interested in space and astronomy), we want to purchase our first telescope. My daughter is in that age where she is asking for a telescope to observe the vast space. We are based in UK (Northampton) and i am looking to invest up to £300 for our first telescope. Ideally it should be a telescope that will allow us to observe the moon, Mars, Saturn in the best possible clarity that the price point will allow us. Also, if it is something that offers a GoTo option even better! Not sure if i am
