Hi

Hi

Thanks for the warm welcome by everyone! Go to telescopes, I love gadgets and i work with computers so I a natural choice. But shall I get a celestron, or SkyWatcher mak goto telescope or a 4" refractor. Refractor would be better for dso due to wider field of view, the but still good for planets and etc?

Any experience on this I would be interested in your views

I started astronomy after using my grand dads 3" dixons refractor in the late 70's and my idol was and still is Carl sagan! I've always been interested in science and now I think it it time to rekindle that boyhood interest and dream!
