That is when the skkywatcher Esprit 100mm is next available, I know that because I know the man at OVL UK, so i have just ordered this which will come next week, as this is a massive purchase I do hope I am doing the right thing

It's a very good telescope. Once the planets are better positioned, you should get some superb views of them. :mrgreen:
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.
