(1) Does the Autostar take the fun out of Astronomy? Would I be better of spending more money on optics and leaving out the fancy computer side of it?
(2) I am hoping to do some Webcam imaging. Does the 105 get you good pics of Jupiter with good seeing? Should I be able to see the divisions in Saturn's rings?
(3) I have read some reviews that say that the motor drive of the ETX range is not upto scratch - any comments?
(4) For the same money as I would spend on the ETX-105, would I be better of spending the money on a different telescope if my main objective is to take some good Webcam shots?

Thanks for your time,

Mike (Wales, UK)
