Hello fellow star gazers. I have a student that wants to upgrade her current setup. She wants to see more from nebula, as this current setup isn't quite powerful enough to handle it, she wants the next step up.

Her current setup is this.



What suggestions would you go with? I think she's ready for an intermediate setup. She's proven to be ready to move up from this beginner's model.


Thank you for all of your help!

She has a good 5” setup already 👍

Moving forwards as she wants to observe nebula I would  suggest moving to a simple Dobsonian type mount and putting the funds into a bigger mirror - a useful step up in aperture would be 8”


The 10” version would be even better.......but they are quite heavy.

As you are in the US the Orion brand is an equivalent.
