    Hello All,

    Finally have the finance and space to commit to buying a telescope.

    I am based in Essex in the UK and have recently joined my local area club.

    I have my sights on a Celestron NexStar 8SE with the Celestron eye and filter kit for starters.

    Hope to do a lot of exploring with Astrophotography being my main key area.

    Hope to add some usual input into the forum.

    Adam
