100mm Maksutov vs 127mm, twice as good?

Hello all,

firstly, thanks in advance for any help that comes my way.

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 ...
