Hi to everyone. :lol:

I've been into astronomy since my Dad showed me a metor shower when I was eight. Have been hooked with it and everything Sci-Fi etc ever since. I've recently got back into it [family, kids, money etc]. since seeing the Sky @ Night magazine. Am now looking for a telescope, and hope to be back in the game again.

Look forward to reading info on this forum.

Jaffa.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome. :lol:

As for scopes, I've narrowed it down to a Skywatcher Explorer 200 [EQ5 motorised version]. This I can afford [just] and has been given good reviews.

Any opinion's welcome, but I think my mind is set. :lol:

Hi Jaffa,

Welcome mate, I don't think you'll get too many arguments about your choice of equipment, those scopes are cracking value for money and very good alrounders.

Welcome Jaffa,

I agree that your choice of scope is a good one, I would mention that the extra few quid to move from the Driven EQ5 to the HEQ5 would be an extremely good investment.

Just a little food for thought! Good luck

Sorry Ant, I mis-typed, that's the one I've been looking at the HEQ5 version [oops]

Thanks
