I've been looking for a starter telescope for my daughter and without knowing anything about them I'm leaning towards a Meade EXT 70AT.Its a computer controlled telescope,which should make it easier to find planets,stars etc but it looks quite small.
I desperately need some advice as the more I read about different types of telescopes the more confused I'm becoming (reflectors/refractors/catadioptric) ?
What detail will be visible with this telescope of planets ?
Is there any way to mount a digital camera to it ?
Is the idea of computer tracking a waste of money ?
Other make/ model suggestions ?(don't want to spend thousands for a starter telescope !)
Any advice appreciated TIA Zydig0
