... Thanks people... so much to think about.. will investigate the local groups here and try and get some more info... Really looking forward to getting involved... :)
Ok, 43 years old, been meaning to buy for years, spend evenings just looking at the sky with my naked eye and the computer screen when I get the chance. Been in love with the stars since I was about 10, just laying in the local field for hours when I should have been home studying.... you get the picture... Anywho.. Have decided eventually to buy something I have a budget of about £600, might be able to slide a little bit more for extras under the radar... :-).. Love the idea of these GOTO mounts and the likes but need some real practical advice on what I should buy...... the more I read the more indecisive I become. I want to look as deep into the sky as possible but understand my budget restricts me big time.... I will def. pay additional costs to get photos of the things i see through my scope.. So... what do you think? Advice please... Thanks Paul..
