I went from a 60mm f15 on eq2 made by ( imported from Japan ) Meade in 1977 that I loved and used for years and when I upgraded to a Celestron 102mm f10 achromat on eq3 mount I was amazed at the difference in views .

The C102 showed everything better in leaps and bounds and done me well for a decade then sold it . I liked that scope so much I grabbed a Saxon version here in the classifieds for $370 and its a great performer as well .

Yes one of these is a good step up for little outlay .To show you what is acheaveable if you are patient and watch the classifieds here is the newer Saxon 102mm f10 achro on a Vixen Supar Polaris I got here for $400 so both the scope and mount were only $770 , great quality and value .

Good luck on what ever you choose . Be patient and enjoy your 60mm until then .


edit: , the tripod was free from here as it was broken , an easy fix , its a Meade HD field tripod and very solid ( now )
