I am selling my ES 34mm 68* 2" as it has too big exit pupil for my telescope. Optics are pristine and there is not even little mark on the barrel.
The price in total, 140 127 GBP, includes shipping within the EU and PP fees. Thanks for looking!
I am looking for a good beginner’s telescope that we could enjoy for years to come. My 10-year old son has wanted a telescope forever and is constantly reading up on the sky in encyclopaedias.
For my tight single-mom budget, I have found two options that seem appealing (I am enclined to go with a Dobsonian over a refractor, following comments on better image clarity):
1. Skywatcher 130mm/f650 with EQ mount (2nd hand for CA$125) including 25 wide angle, 10mm and 3.6mm.
2. Celestron PowerSeeker 127 EQ (new for CA$200 including taxes) including 20mm, 4mm and 3x Barlow lenses, The Sky software and a 2-year warranty (and although the website calls it a "refractor" telescope, I’m pretty sure it is a Dob).
Could you please advise me on these two options?
Thank you ?
Hoping to get a 254mm (10 inch) , f4.7 dob reflector soon. Hoping to see wide-field views of clusters etc. I'd like the widest field of view my budget and scope will allow. Would a 24mm eyepiece be the lowest power to use? I'd love to get huge wide fields as with TV Delos and Ethos, but my budget for this eyepiece is around £150. Thinking maybe Hyperion? Any help much appreciated.
