Hi all. I'm looking to start an adventure into astrophotography. But current climate means there's no stock around. Was looking at skywatcher 130pds or 150pds.  I'm now looking about bresser messier scopes. Don't see many using them or much about them are they worth looking into?

Bresser have a good rating with build slightly better than skywatcher particularly their focuser a search on sgl may throw up threads of interest, mirror holders on Newtonian seem better too having six points rather than three on skywatcher.

Hi Nick, a warm welcome to the group. From what I gather it's a bit of a steep learning curve, that and you need deep pockets. There does seem to be a shortage of gear at the moment and I can only assume that it's a similar problem caused by world wide issues with shipping.

Good luck, I hope you find some gear to get going.
