Which Scope

Hi all.... I am a basic learner and am undecided as to which scope to purchase...I would like a GOTO scope and hev narrowed the search down to the Meade.ETX80AT and the Celestion Nextstar 130SLT. It appears to me that the Celestion has a larger magnification but at what cost. I must confess that the Celestion is my favourite as the setting up (2 star) would look easier than searching for the Pole star... any ...

dusty skywatcher pro 150

Novice seeks guidance

A complete novice is after a bit of advice.

I've been looking at a Meade ETX 70AT which is for sale at £249.99. It has a small Autostar database attachment.

Can anyone let me know whether they think this is a good purchase for someone just beginning to get a bit more interested in astronomy. I'm also interested in starting astrophotography, so would this model be suitable for that also? If not, a suitable alternative ...
