Good afternoon CN members.
I've read many posts for telescopes under $300 but would like your opinions on what I need for the best views of Orion Nebula with color.
I came across an Amazon page with a customer's image review of a colorful M42 from the Meade 80mm Adventure scope but don't know what EP I would need to get a colorful image like the review pic?
I recently went to a star party at the Griffith Observatory in LA. My first viewing was a colorful Orion Nebula through a Meade LX90 and I was hooked. So beautiful.
Since then, I wanted to buy a Sky-Watcher 6" DOB, Starblast 6, or AWB but don't have enough room for a stool too to put in the car's trunk; and I would like to keep the setup simple with a stand being provided. I would consider Used but haven't found anything on ebay, CN classfied or on New Orleans craigslist for under $340 for a total setup.
If you have a link for used or new, I would like to know.
I am strongly considering buying a new Meade Infinity 102 for $188 from walmart for their easy return policy.
Is the new Meade StarPro AZ 102 alot better for $239?
And with your recommendations, what eyepieces would I need?
I plan to go camping in Yosemite and Yellowstone in a couple of months and have 1/3 of the car's trunk space available for a telescope.
