Hi folks IV been getting so much info of this site, it's amazing. Thank you all. I'm a complete novice, getting into astronomy after looking through a mates cheap celestron first scope and well too be frank it blew me away! My son is also very keen to learn. I'm very excited as this hobby will compliment my other hobbies of fishing and camping. All my viewing will be done away from home due to light pollution, tree's and buildings, so portability is definitely key. I decided that a mak127 will probably be a good choice as my main interest for now will be solar and planetary. My question is regarding mounts. I want easy and quick but quality and stability. Another friend recon's I need goto? He may be right but that means lots more gear to carry and buy. I'm confused ! When I used the celestron I just lined it up to the moon with no problems also looked at Mars and Venus , I think? Haha. This setup I used had definitely not been set up properly and he had no idea on using it .Tracking the objects was no problem as I quickly worked out the dials. Thanks for any replies in advance Back to eBay looking for bargains now haha
