Would you need a bigger eyepiece to see Uranus :giggle:
#2
If you can see uranus you don't need a telescope, you need an osteopath!
#3
Or a mirror :-)

Damnit. I've been waiting for something like this for ages. Can't it be ordered online?
[helper]#5

This is a good bit of fun kit with a proper mount, but guv is right you won't get much detail with a 3" reflector. It will show the moon quite large, but not a lot else. A 5-6" reflector would be needed to show Saturn's rings.

Thanks for the advice guys, could you give a novice a decent "starter" scope in the 8" reflector class to look for, please?

Lets get real, those are most likely NOT the celestial bodies the buyers of this would be looking at:giggle: :whistling:

Thanks guv, this may be a cheap way in at £70 but if it's limited I'd rather spend more on a decent one. I'll take a look around for meade and clarkenwell.

would this help see through frosted glass at a distance of 70m?

Try squinting and tilting your head to one side. :giggle:

Would be worth giving these guys a call:

I've phoned them in the past and had some very friendly (and good) advice on what to go for etc etc

Just a word of caution - beware of some of the 'bargains' you'll see on Ebay. Most of the optics on the cheap Chinese made ones you'll see aren't up to much and in the world of telescopes optical quality is everything. Not to say there aren't the occasional good buy to be had, but stick to named brands such as Meade, Bresser, Skywatcher etc

Good luck.

Here is a funny fact: Uranus was going to be originally called George, until the astromoner was overruled.
