Buying a telescope!
So you’ve decided to take the plunge and get a telescope. Choosing a telescope is very different from buying a television, and salespeople rarely understand what amateur astronomers need. Delmarva Stargazers’ has a version of Sky & Telescope’s buying guide below.
If you want more information, go to Sky & Telescope’s Skywatching Video Series: Buying Your First Telescope.
If you have any questions, email Don Surles (a Delmarva Stargazer) at email@example.com or call at 302-653-9445. The Delmarva Stargazers are offering a free training session. Stargazers will check your new telescope’s optical alignment, show you how to do that and set up the finder-scope. This session will allow you to enjoy your new telescope. There will also be some information to take home about amateur astronomy!
