okthen BS: beginner telescope - any advice? (18) RE: BS: beginner telescope - any advice? 15 Jan 04

Meade seem to be about as good as it gets but they they aint cheap from new, I would recommend you look for a second hand 'scope, if you don't like it or want to upgrade you should be able to recoup most of the money.I would suggest you start with something like this (this is an English site and price, US should be cheaper).
A lot depends on where you want to set up and whether or not you're going to travel around,a large scope can take quite a while to set up properly and is best left in one place. Smaller ones can be stowed away a lot easier.
Hope this helps.
