Feedback on my first scope buy ?

You've seen similar questions hundreds of times, and I've read the answers, but before I go ahead, could you give some feedback ?
I'm getting my first real scope (best I had so far was a 70mm Travelscope with camera tripod). Will use it summer half of year in south Sweden, at summer house, so not very much light pollution from city lights, but need to avoid time around midsummer. Main interest DSOs, and a ...

100mm Maksutov vs 127mm, twice as good?

Hello all,

I am buying my first telescope and after a lot of research I have come to the conclusion that I am mostly interested in planetary observation. It seems to me that I might need a scope that is out of my budget/ portability preferences to see anything worth while that is more deep space. Also I simply love seeing Jupiter and Saturn ...

MY first telescope MY first telescope

Hi all,

I'm just starting out in astronomy although i've been interested in it for a lot of years. I've finally decided to get my first telescope but to be honest i'm a bit overwhelmed by the amount of choice available. I'm looking at spending no more than £150 to start with and was just wondering what telescope/equipment you would advice that I get as my first purchase?

Thanks in advance,
Kev.

T Adapter Question

Hello,

I have a perhaps silly but very specific question...

A little context - I already have some experience with Astrophotography; I have a Canon EOS 700D along with the kit lens & have just purchased a Samyang 14mm f2.8. I also own a Celstron AstroMaster 114 as well as the Celstron travel scope 70. I also recently got a t-ring for my canon...

I'm ashamed to say that I don't really have any experience ...
