Hello from Halesowen :)

I have been thinking over the last couple of years about getting back into astronomy - I did a fair bit in the '70s-'80's - and now I'm looking at buying a decent 'scope.

A week ago I was thinking I'd get a 6-8" dob, but now i'm hoping to go straight for a 12" dob with tracking.

There are loads of brilliant posts on here, I wish I'd found this forum a couple of weeks ago, but I'm glad I did berfore purchasing.

off to read more now...

Welcome Roger, be sure to get opinions before buying here as SGL as we have many experiences with different scopes.

Thankyou for the welcomes :)

This really is a good site, I've spent the last 2-3 hours reading and not bored yet :)

I do have a lot of questions as I want to get off to a good start. my main interests are in DSO and astrophotograhy.
