Hi from Pootz in Brum

Hi
My name is Andy but everyone calls me Pootz
I'm new to all things astronomy and am looking at buying my first telescope.
I have a budget of around £250 and tried researching things on the internet but all that has done is fried my brain due to the fact there's so many different types of telescopes / mounts etc.

I eventually want something I can control via my laptop, this is due to my disability and not laziness, but for now I'd just be happy with buying a telescope and tripod to which I can add the computer stuff later

All I've managed to work out so far is that I'd like a focal length of about 600mm to 700mm...I came to this conclusion after seeing what a 300mm focal length camera lense can produce.

And that's as far as I got so any info on what the best type is for a beginner and what to look for so I get value for my money will be gratefully appreciated

Many thanks
