i use a 150p reflector but general rule of thumb is get the largest apperature you can afford.

whats your budget?

have you checked out first light optics yet (click on their box at the top of the page)

slightly off topic but when I berated my local newsagent for saying "astrology" GRRRRRRR, he pointed out that the first people to observe, record and try to predict the movement of the heavenly bodies were actually observing the heavens for the purposes of foretelling the future so they were more, sort of astrologers than astronomers. Needless to say I don't shop there any more ;)

ps -welcome

pps don't do it again :):)

Wah!

It's an easily-made mistake.

Anyone who really takes offence is 'up themselves' and takes themselves far too seriously.

We're generally more friendly than that on here.

M42...mmmm...makes life special, eh?
