Thank you,
I appreciate all advice.
I think I will need some more time to go through Celestron and Skywatcher models again and choose few and then decide which one is light but good enough for me.
What I wanted to do was to avoid to buy a very simple and then change it for better one.
Anyway , I will spend more time on it and then decide.
I have seen that Celestron 100az not always has good reviews( the one I have chosen first) .
Skywatcher evostar seems to have good reviews, but everything over 90mm is horribly heavy.
If it comes to computerised, I tend to agree that it is better not to be dependend on power supply.
But still nothing in the shops now anyway.

Computerised telescopes do not interest me at all either...this is hardly surprising when dealing with this tablet is about as much as I can do computer-wise. The simpler the better. mike [the watcher]...Given a clear morning I must watch out for Comet Erasmus!!
