Hi Andy and welcome aboard. There are lots of good scopes about that you can start off with. Maybe when you're ready, post a shortlist in the 'getting started' section and you will find that lots of folks can chip in with some ideas and suggestions.

Good luck :)

Hi Andy,

Warm welcome to SGL, thats a great scope to get. Leave some pennies over for a couple of ep's and a copy of 'sky & telescope pocket star atlas'.... Also download a planetarium program. A good one is stellarium, this is free and can be found here :==== http://www.stellarium.org/

Cheers

Hi Andy and welcome to the forum. Good idea to take your time whne buying a scope as there are plenty to choose from and all capable of slightly different things. You have come to the right place so feel free to ask what ever question yo like in the appropriate section and I'm sure your enquiries will be met with plenty of responses,

Clear skies for now and enjoy the forum.
