Are you in the North West

Recommended Posts

I know i probably put this in the wrong area but i was wonder if there are people in and around Lostock Hall, Preston, Lancashire, UK who would like to share the astronomy interest, i am only just starting out and any face to face help or advice would be appreciated.

Maybe getting the chance to compare equipment....Ohh Err... :)

I cant find any 200P's in stock local at a decent price, best price i found is £399 with Eq5 from a guy in Ulverston but i think he is out of stock and the price is going up i think

the 200 will gather a lot more light - 50 square inches of mirror Vs 28 for the 150

I am biased towards dobs and would wait for a 200 personally, you'll be glad you did. plus it would be about £250?

I had a Dob for my first scope a skyliner 200 i think but it was so difficult to move around and needed a flat base etc....maybe a flex tube with auto would be an option but i still need the motors for photography which is on of my main aims this time round

Hi Jasper,

Im just down the road in clayton le woods, I only have a cheap scope and some bins at the moment but am looking at buying a decent/serious beginners scope in the near future, always up for a chat and wouldn't mind finding out what you think of your scope when you get it!
