    Sorry for the late reply Cyclone. You can get good equipments with a RM5K budget, but for AP, it might not be enough, unless you're talking planetary objects. I would suggest you start with a refractor or SCT. I'm using a Skywatcher ED120 refractor myself, with a GOTO mount - which means I have to spend less time searching and more time viewing

    My best advice, don't buy any equipment yet. Go visit your local astronomy club - there are tons in Klang Valley. Sample a few scopes before committing yourself to one.

    Clear skies!

    Thanks for the reply.
    But who are the local astronomy clubs around KV?
    They are rather difficult to track down.

    Hi,

    Just a simple Google search of "Astronomy Club Malaysia" yielded quite a few:

    Stargazer Society✩: List of Astronomy Clubs / Contacts in Malaysia
    Astronomy Clubs in Malaysia

    Malaysia Nature Society Selangor also has an Astronomy Arm.

    Good luck!

    I did exactly that actually.

    Not so much as a response unfortunately. Either they are inactive or they are not bothered to respond. Sad.

    Welcome Arwin, and I must say good choice on the XT8! As with all DSO, the larger the mirror, the more clearer the object. I'm using a 4.7" refractor, so you are watching a more detailed sky than I am.

    Hope you get clear & dark skies in Ipoh - it's terribly cloudy here in JB.

    Hi isr25, thank you for the warm welcome. That's an amazing refractor you have there.

    Thank you. I hope you have a clear and dark skies in JB soon. At the moment in Ipoh, it's extremely cloudy too. Hopefully we all shall have a good optimal viewing condition soon. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

    You can try to check with stargazeronlinestore website which is located in KL. They may carry second hand model and they also have new models for good price. You should take a trip there and check out for yourself and see if it suits for your budget.
