I am going to buy my first telescope and I can't make up my mind with the focal ratio. I have seen this two option within my budget
Skywatcher 130/1000 eq2 with a f/7.7 ratio
Meade 130 Polaris EQ with 650 mm focal length and f/5 ratio.
I read that a f/7.7 would be better to watch planets while f/5 would be better to watch galaxies and nebulae and will also give a brighter image.
As I am new and never looked through a telescope like those I don't know which to choose. The idea of looking at galaxies really excited me but I also wanted to see planets such as Jupiter or Saturn and it's moons, and at the moment I am not considering photography as I still need to get familiar with the telescope but in the future I would love to take some photos so brightness could be important.
My question is how much difference would I noticed between these two focal ratio when I looked at planets and galaxies. Would I get a much better view of Saturn with a f/7.7 or not really?
Thanks in advance for your advices
Heyyy its meee kronos and i have been wondering about getting a filter...I really want the best contrast and brightness i can on my nebulas(i want to view M42 M57 M27 M31 M81 M82 and lots more) with my future 8" dob. Is this filter really going to help me?
If it just a matter of quality of the filter itself can you suggest a better one in the same price range?
Or will not the uhc filter help me in general .IF so can you reccomend another one?
