MEADE TELESCOPE MODEL DS - 70 EC, a good choice for beginner?

Recommended Posts

Good day,

I am new to the forum and interested in buying a telescope.

I would like to use it for beginner stargazing as well as for daylight spotting, as we can watch sometimes the whales coming close by.

I live in a coastal town in downunder, and came across a brand new



It is offered on ebay. au and price is (A$200) plus A$50 for fright.

Is this telescope the right one for me?

It comes with motor drive, tripod, eyepieces and so on, so I guess a complete set.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks very much ,

cheers moonstone
