Just as CoViewer said. I’m going to concur with that statement. Another thing I’d like to share is. You will have to assess your own situation honestly. Assess about your location’s light pollution. Driving distance if pollution is too bad. Time allotment for sessions ie visual or photography. Of course. Learning about the night sky and all of it navigational skills like the pros here would recommend you do is great and all. For me. The love of astronomy comes with attachments. Things such as how much time I have, how far do I have to drive to get to a decent dark location. So. I’d say to get a set of Go-To scope that befitting your fully assessed situation the best and go at it.

I missed the part about the eyepiece set. I am very happy with the Baader Q-Turret Set, which is well though-out and which I found used for not a lot of money.

Had I not that found that on my local market, I would have started building my set one EP at a time according to needs (my kit only came with a – decent – 25mm).
