After 2 years observing with eyeballs and binocs...I think I am ready for my first scope. I am not specifing Make Model or aperture. Must be car portable , motor tracking desirable but not necessary, will pick up, must see it set up and operational. Am not interested in a refractor. Had thought I wanted a Meade ETX 90 with Go To. After discussing with other amateurs, they convinced me to forgo the Go To and get more aperture for the same money. However mostly I am talking to guys with scopes bigger than their vehicles. My budget is $500.00.
I would still consider an ETX90 for sale complete with tripod and GO TO and both standard eyepieces, if the price is right.
Thanks for reading.
