Beginner Astronomer, Which Telescope?

Beginner Astronomer, Which Telescope?

Postby Starbug » Sun Mar 20, 2011 6:06 pm

Hi,
Please help me, I'm new to astronomy and I'm looking for my first telescope.
I want the best possible scope for about £100.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hey Starbug and welcome to the forum! You can pick up a 'scope for around £100, but I'd suggest attending your local Astronomical Society before you buy - you get to meet like-minded folk (with lots of experience) and a chance to try other people's kit before you buy. It'll give you a better idea of what you'll get for your money.

Hi Wayne
Thanks for the reply, good idea about finding a local astronomy club, that's next on my "to do" list! I have a pair of Sakura binos 10x-50x50 which are powerful but obviously not stable.
cheers again
