Hi gang,

Astronomers at the VLT in Chile have had a glimpse of the far future of the Solar System. For the very first time they have seen the shattered remains around a white dwarf, named SDSS J1228+1040, which most astronomers believe will be the fate of our Sun in some four and a half billion years.

Please help, what is the difference between these

Hello, I'm looking to purchase a telescope, am brand new to all of this. I have seen this one but found it for two very different prices. Please could someone advise if there is a lot of difference between the two kits and if the one is worth the more premium price tag?
