    I Promise I'll Be Good!

    I want a telescope, I promise I won't use it to look at the guys doing construction down the way!  I really DO want to look at the stars, to help me find that little dipper... who can be so damned hard to spot sometimes,   To trace the textures on the moon, to get...

    I Need Your Help to Decide!

     I've been trying to make a decision for couple days now. Should I really buy a telescope (it's really a spotting scope) or not? I found a nice Yukon spotting scope with a camera adapter from the local e-shop and it's on sale, -200 euros from the normal price and the camera...

    6 Inches

    I want a 6 inch Reflector Telescope, with a photography attachment. I'd probably be lazy and want one with a computer to find stuff for me, too. I'm not perfect, after all.

    Maybe Next Year..

    I've wanted a really nice telescope for a long time. Ever since I was little I've loved looking at stars. I'm not a fanatic about them and I don't go reading all about them online, but I know a decent amount about stars and find looking up at them very relaxing. I used to have...

    I Want A Useful Telescope

    About 20 years ago I bought a cheap refracting telescope (where you look through the lenses). Truth is, it wasn't very good. Moon looked great. Rings on Saturn were OK. In fact, lying on my back on the ground with my head on a cushion and using binoculars was better. With...
