    Default Telescopes.

    Anybody know anything about telescopes. I'm having a Conservatory built and fancy a telescope in it. I live in a rural area and we get some lovey clear skies.

    I want a fairly decent one, but not more than £80-£90.

    Telescopes are great fun but do take up more time than you think. My wife got me a Meade a few years ago along with a nice case of lenses. You will find you get what you pay for !!. Tasco are ok but its the different between driving with just your left eye open or both. You decide
