Hi and a question

  1. Sep 12, 2007 #1
    I'm getting back in to Astronomy after a short period (ok 17yrs ;) ) I've brought my self a very cheap telescope £23, its not the greatest but its some to get me started, but I am now in the process of looking at buying another one I have up to £250 to spend on a new one. Can any one recommend a good one for this price, Ive been looking at Bresser Messier N130 and may be at a push N150.
    Also looking at NEXSTAR 130 SLT are these worthy of my hard earned cash.

    Look for a local club to join before you buy a telescope.
    Read the thread below about "cursed by my new telescope" for difficulties n setting one up yourself even after buying a good one.
