  1. Hi, I’m new to this group and I’m just looking for some advice really. I have a Helios 120 on an EQ mount, red spot finder, 2x Barlow, erecting eyepiece etc, which I’ve had for many years from new. I’ve added a drive for tracking and a powered focus attachment. It serves my need well, I prefer planet spotting and the moon mainly from my garden in the middle of a housing estate. But I was thinking of getting something much more portable, I could carry to better sites or put in the car maybe with my Manfrotto tripod. Maybe even one of these tabletop scopes would work if I could have the option of using it with my tripod if there isn’t a platform available? I want something that would be equal or better preferably than my current set up. But I’m a bit out of touch these days and I’m looking for some advice really. I could possibly sell what I have and start again, or if the budget isn’t to high maybe get something in addition. I’m looking to spend 4 to £500 ideally. It’s a minefield out there, so any help would be gratefully received. Many thanks for taking the time to read my post.
