moved to Sweden

Recommended Posts


I moved to Sweden last year. The moving company broke the mount of my celestron nexstar 6se so I haven't been doing any viewing lately.

We have some amazing clear nights here but a bit cold!

I'm thinking about buying a new telescope, maybe a dobsonian 10 inch. I have up to an absolute Max of a grand to spend. Any recommended please?

Thanks for the reply.

I think I am leaning towards the 10 inch skywatcher flextube. They seem to be quite well liked on here.....

Couple of questions though.

Will I need a fan? If so are they easy to fit and can someone recommend one please?

Any other accessories I will need to consider to get good use straight away?

Thanks in advance.

Another vote for the orion  optics 10", a well respected scope. The skyliner new is c£530..Both big capable scopes.. Fans are one of the first mods put on these big boys!

Good luck with your choice.

For visual anything manual like an az4 or 5, skytee, will do. I've even used my azgti which is the cheapest goto I believe, the scope is a bit on the limit if the dovetails are long but for visual it should be okay. The newer SAGTI is also highly commended but same payload as azgti.

For a bit more strength and upgrade potential look to 1000K+ costing mounts (you can save a lot from RRP buying used) like an eq5 or 6, ioptron gem/cem 20 range.
