    Default Need 1st telescope advice



    Hello there my name is Chris I have always loved astronomy but never had the chance to own a scope until now I have narrowed it down to two scopes based on my research and wondering if you can advise which is better or pros and cons for each. The scopes are Skywatcher Star Discovery WiFi P150i GOTO Telescope or the Skywatcher Skyliner 200P Dobsonian Telescope thanks In Advanced

    Hi Chris and welcome to the forum!

    Unfortunately, nowadays due to lack of admin support, many broken things, lack of security, and an infusion of spam bots, the bulk of the active membership has moved to a new, maintained, and secure forum: https://www.theskysearchers.com/index.php

    Hope to see you there!
    Bryan

    This is (or was) an astronomy site. We don't do astrology here.

    We don't do much of anything here any more, since the forum was invaded by spambots. If it is astronomy you want to talk about, come over to The Sky Searchers, where most of the former members are. If your interest is in astrology, it would be better to go somewhere else.
