To save time getting right to the point-Ive owned a celestron skyprodigy 90 and that scope alone made me feel more powerful than ever.Im planning on spending close to 2,000 on a new setup with a far larger aperture and although I love the cassegrain goto scopes from celestron and Meade,I’ve been wondering if my budget should go toward a custom dobsonian.
My dream begins with landing a setup within that budget and choosing the right attachments to be able to study the moon up close and personal.If you can imagine it I’d like to be able to at least recognize a footprint if there is one.Im assuming this is possible while so many scopes can see so much further away like other planets and such.
I’m more than grateful for any input that you’ve learned the hard way or any financial corners I can cut while still being true to the game.
Thanks in advance.
I’m a beginner, I started of with a 70mm focal length telescope with a 4mm lense. With this I am able to see the moon in fine detail however all other planets appear very small. Mars for example, I can see with me eyes and when I look through the telescope it is barely magnified. My question is; What telescope could I buy at a £300-400 budget to see all the planets in the solar system and perhaps even nebula from Andromeda.

of all the kinds of telescopes, is there any one kind that just flat out is better or do all different kinds do different things better? I'm on the market now to buy my third scope, so i want to see if there is a "best" design, and if not, what kind of scope suits my needs. i don't do astrophotography yet, but i want to at some point. i have a honking big minivan so portability isn't big deal, and anyway my mak is very portable. i have a pretty good budget, i can spend up to $700 on this although i would like to keep it under $600 if i can. i would love specific recommendations, but i also would love just general ideas.
