I've been using a 90mm MCT for a while now and enjoying observing the moon and planets. I recently retired and I will be relocating later this year. I want to move someplace with truly dark skies and my dream (one of them anyway) is to sit in my back yard with a glass of wine and a cigar and stargaze. I have no interest in astrophotograpy, just visual observing.
I went to a general merchandise auction last week and I came home with this:
The price was just too good to pass up, but I'm afraid this is way too much scope for me, although I'd like to think I could eventually grow into it. I can't use it at present as I don't have a mount for it, or any eyepieces worthy of it. If I sell it, I can make a tidy profit, enough to get a 10 inch Dobsonian or something like that. ,
So I'm a bit conflicted here. I can hang on to this, start saving for a mount and eyepieces, and plan to start using it after I relocate. Or I can sell it and get something a little less...grand. Any advice or opinions will be gratefully received. Thanks.
