I was wondering what all of you think would be the best telescope for someone like me!
I am quite new in the world of astronomy, however, I have always had a huge interest in space!
I live in Sydney, Australia, the area doesn't have terrible light pollution although it isn't great. I currently have a little table top dob which isn't terrible but i'd love to look at something other than the moon ahah. I was looking at getting a Dobsonian telescope (around 8+ inches) but i'm not 100% sure. My backyard is kinda small with heaps of huge trees and some bushes which hang over it, front garden is bigger with a better view of the sky but hosting a telescope up and down might be a tad annoying (I would probably still go down but its not ideal).
I have had my eye out on some telescopes on gumtree as they're quite cheap (8"-12" dobs from around AU$350-$550)
any advice is good advice so please, comment it all )
