Hello I need your expert advise and opinions please. I currently have a Sky-watcher 114 telescope which has served me well for the few years I've had it, but I've always had trouble with balancing, aligning and generally finding the more difficult things in the night sky. So I feel now is the time to upgrade to a goto telescope as I am keen to take up astrophotography and image and share what I'm seeing. My theory is that if I have a computerised / goto telescope and mount, I would spend less time setting up and more time enjoying the night sky. I have between £400 - £650 to spend I've done some research and I have come up with a few options but also welcome any suggestions you all come up with which I haven't thought of already.

I await your wisdom

James's talk covers: Pre-war history - Jansky and other early pioneers; Jodrell Bank and the Cambridge group - Lovell, Hey and Ryle's developments; Interferometry - Techniques used to improve resolving power; CMB radiation - Its discovery. What is it? Where we are now; Pulsars and Quasars - Their detection; what they are; blazars; active galactic nuclei; Radio Galaxies - What sort of galaxy are they? Structure of radio emission; 21 cm hydrogen line - What we learn from the study of neutral hydrogen More info: http://fordingbridgeastro.org.uk/programme.php
