I have been out of the telescope scene for awhile. I am bleeding at the eyes trying to figure out what to buy to get back into it. I offer you these variables to jumble in your head to help me choose what to purchase to satisfy my urge.
#1. I LOVE SOLAR.... as in pst or Lunt. I had a pst ... cried the day I had to sell it.
#2. I used to own both reflector and refractor. 10" and 5" were the max size I have owned. So I am no stanger to either. ( except a good APO.)
#3. I am now a disbled/retired bricklayer with a bad back.
#4. I still want a scope or scopes that will offer me that wow factor for your typical easy deep sky objects that said owned scopes would have offered.
#5. Keep it under 2k for all of this.... and point me to a seller.
Thank you all for your responses!!
I personally have been thinking of the dual scope mount...with a lunt on one side, and the other... a good quality portable big apo.... in budget. I am a visual person... but would love to be able to go remote with a mallincam or along those lines.
