    Default Wanting to buy my husband a telescope



    Hi,

    Iíve posted this in the introductions forum but I canít see my post I am looking for advice please. .

    My husband and I just purchased our first home together. We have fields behind us and good visibility at night.

    He is very interested in the moon & night sky and I have decided to get him a telescope for Christmas, heís not very big on technology so if itís relatively easy to use then that would be a bonus , however I am good with instructions and tech so I can always help him.

    Iím wanting something to hopefully see planets I.e Saturnís rings, Iím not sure what price I would need to spend but my budget is 200-250 max really as itís his first telescope.

    Heís never done any telescope viewing (lol) before so any advice would be welcome. I have seen some that look good that work with apps?

    Also I have a canon 700d camera would be awesome if we could use that to take pics- Iím probably asking for too much now!! Haha

    Thank you xx
