Welcome to the SGL. I think the 200p Dob would be among many SGL members top recommendations for a good visual use scope if budget will allow.

Clear skies,

Hi Jeffo,

Welcome to SGL, thats a great choice of scope too. Save some pennies for a copy of 'sky & telescope pocket star atlas', and download a planetarium program, stellarium is great and also free, it can be found here ... http://www.stellarium.org/

Cheers

Hi Jeffro and welcome to the forum. The type of scope depends mainly on what you want to do with it, but if it is visual then the 200p has a lot going for it and for the money will certainly provide you with some very good views. It's the U.K's best selling scope and for good reason, so I don't think you will go far wrong with this choice and of course should you want to upgrade in the future (....trust me, you will! :grin:) then its popularity will hold a good resale value meaning its true cost in real terms is significantly less.

Clear skies and enjoy the forum

James
