Happy New Year
So I wanted a simple altaz mount to keep in the house and grab-and-go to have a quick look at stuff and show things to others without having to open the observatory. I chose the Skywatcher AZ3 mount which I thought would suit my C80ED refractor well.
I found it for about £120 at most places which seemed reasonable. However, I also found it for £99 at Wex Photographic including a 70mm f/7 achromatic refractor. So £20 cheaper plus a free telescope! Obviously the telescope isn’t as good as the C80 but I am now using it as a guidescope instead of the C80, which was too good to be used solely for that purpose. Can’t be bad!
