New to Astronomy.

Sun Aug 12, 2018 8:33 am

Hello every one,
After reading numerous articles on recommended telescopes for first time purchasers, there seems to be a few to choose from. Refractor telescope is what i am looking for with the ability to be mechanised for following celestial bodies.
Sturdy build is key to me especially reading some fastener mechanisms seemed cumbersome. No budget in mind and if any body could recommend some starter reading material that would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards.

Hello Bandit and welcome!

Here's an article from the Sky at Night Magazine on choosing your first telescope:

I would say keep reading up on different aspects of different telescopes then get the best you can afford that matches your particular interests.

Regards

Graeme
