hi iceman! thanks for replying so quickly...

the goto question is difficullt... i would initially love the ease of a computer, but i ultimatley would like to be able to understand right acs/declination . etc. and find things manually... if i get a model with goto, will that effect my later aspirations? i'm also aware of a rather large price increase when electronics are applied...

and in regards to astrophotography... is it true that in order to properly see nebulas, you need to take a photo with the shutter down for a while? i would love to get into astroph, but if that affects my other viewing plans, and the overall price, then i'd rather sacrifice it...
