Hi there,

The scope didn't show up on the link but if it's the Meade LX75 then go for
it.

Lidl in Ireland have that scope on offer for 599 Euro and the concensus on
the boards here was that it was worth getting..

Michael.

It's actually a Bresser terrestrial scope with BAK4 prims. It'll be OK
as a multi-purpose scope, but not much use as a main astro scope. You
could get better for your money - my second hand TAL-1 was only 50 on
eBay. Spend a small amount more and get a Skywatcher.

That's because Lidl "special offers" vary depending on what part of
the country you're in. A particular URL takes you to different pages
depending on whether you have a geographic cookie on your computer or
have entered a postcode. It's all very confusing to their customers
when trying to share URLs.

Try going to http://www.lidl.co.uk , clicking on "Specials" and
entering the postcode (for example) SG6 1AA. Then, click on the tab
marked "From Thursday 07.12".

but if it's the Meade LX75 then go for
it.


It appears to be a Bresser model with a 90mm lens at a hundred pounds.

I've no idea if that's a good buy.

Mike.

The advertisement says "Bresser", but the page http://www.bresseroptic.com
is, um, unenlightening.

The leaflet from my local Lidl branch mentions a 'camera adapter' as
part of the kit. Is this for photography through the telescope or merely
to attach a camera to the tripod.
