Hello

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m new here so thought I would introduce my self. I have been playing at astronomy for about a year on a very cheap Optus 75mm reflector and have now upgraded to an old 8in Orion reflector. Has anyone got any experience of fairly old Orion telescope

Welcome. I have no experience of such a scope but if you have any specific questions, just ask.

Have fun on the learning curve. 🙂

Hi, Thor, and welcome to SGL.

No experience of that particular scope, but will confidently predict that, compared to the 75mm, the views with it will blow you away.

Enjoy the journey.
