Please consider using an alternative browser - especially if you are on Windows XP which only supports the outdated Internet Explorer 8 browser - such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox which do have support for these web standards. As well as not supporting modern features and web standards, old versions of browsers - especially Internet Explorer - can expose your computer to security risks. The Browse Happy website has a list of the latest versions of all major browsers, including Internet Explorer (but remember Windows XP only supports up to IE8!)
If updating/changing your browser is not possible, do not panic - all of the LAS website is still available to you and we are working to make the layout compatible with outdated browsers.
HI neil, you could buy secondhand at this sight http://www.astrobuysell.com/uk/ but if you see anything you are interested in contact us for advice, if you wish to buy new I can recommend the skywatcher heritage 76mm as a good starter scope. I would point out this is my personal view and not that of the LAS.
