Hi @Jerald and welcome to BYA.

Assuming you are based in GB/UK, I would forget about amazon, eBay, etc.

There are dedicated bricks and mortar outlets. First Light Optics, (they sponsor another amateur astronomy forum), are highly recommended. On the FLO site they have a beginner telescopes page... https://www.firstlightoptics.com/beginner-telescopes.html

I wouldn't use FLO again if they paid me. There's nothing wrong with Amazon. Half of all my gear was from Amazon. They're just a middle man.


Altair Astro


Rother Valley Optics


Widescreen Centre


Harrison Telescopes




I've also used all of the above and they are excellent.
