Good Beginners GOTO for DSO's
Saturday, 19 January 2013  | 

The 102 SLT is a fairly short focal length 4" achromatic refractor. This means that it gives great wide-field views of the night sky, including all of the jewels of the Messier catalogue.

The NexStar GOTO is easy to use (if you read the manual) and aids is especially helpfull if you suffer from light pollution. The GOTO has helped me find numerous DSO's from London that I would normally only expect to see in the countryside.

If you don't want the GOTO, then go for a larger scope on a manual mount, such as a Dob 200.
