It has been a while since I was last on this forum, and I have recently returned to Astronomy after a long break I have decided to try and get back into it (Stargazing Live always helps :-) ). The main problem I have/had is being the owner an 8" dob I could never be bothered lugging it out of the shed and setting it as it is quite heavy, and not much fun in the freezing cold, so I have decided to buy a small grab and go scope instead - the Skywatcher Heritage range in particular.
I think I am more of a casual enthusiast so one of these would be ideal for me and quick and easy to set up. I quite like the Heritage-76 or the 100p (I presume there is no option to upgrade this to a Goto system?!)
Any advice is most welcome.
yesterday evening, I could do yet another lunar sketch with my tiny 3" Mini Dobsonian. Round about one and a half day before the full moon, there were still some craters at the western limb favourably lit showing fine shadows.

Date&Time: October 25th, 2120-2205 CET

Hope you like it!
