Hi Phil, and welcome aboard!

Since you already have a DSLR, you should try borrowing one of our driven imaging platforms: either the AstroMount or the "Scotch-mount" - see our "Loans Book" section: http://www.boltonastro.org.uk/forums/viewforum.php?f=17.
You'll be amazed at what you can pick up with just an ordinary lens on the front of your camera.

You'll also see that we also have some telescopes (a couple of old Newtonians and a new Maksutov) available for loan, and after trying them you may have a better idea of what to buy for yourself.

Dean is in charge of our Equipment Loans: see the procedures here: http://www.boltonastro.org.uk/members_area/Documents/BASLoansRules.pdf.
Note that we'll ask for a deposit for the more expensive items.

See you on Tuesday.
Regards from Ross.

P.S. as you're interested in Jupiter, you can download a copy of the slides "By Jove - guide to observing and imaging Jupiter" which Keith and I presented in January: http://www.boltonastro.org.uk/members_area/Workshops/jupiter_v3.pps
and look out for our talk on Mars in April.
