Thanks for the words to date.
So I have ruled out the HEQ5 due to weight and future upgrades etc.

I'm used to finding my way aorund the Sydney sky hopping from one object to another but do want to have a goto scope now. When I'm out of Sydney it takes me ages to find my way around in a dark sky just too many stars compared to Sydney skies.

I'm still unclear for visual only observing if I have a GOTO polar mount like the NEQ6 how accurate do I need to be with the polar allignment for goto to work. ie if I can't see the SCP can I still get it alligned well enough for the GOTO to put the object into a wide eyepiece?

For Astro work I understand alligment is critical...

Cheers Kevin
