Top tips for buying telescopes:
Buying your first telescope can be a daunting project, but with a little help, it need not be that difficult. Getting to know a few important things can really help you in the decision to get the best value for money telescope you can afford to buy.
Here are our top tips to consider when buying your first telescope for astronomy and star-gazing.
Bigger really is better
By bigger, we are talking about the aperture or the diameter of the front lens. The bigger this lens is then the more light you get to see and the better detail can be seen. Higher magnifications don't mean being able to see more, especially if you don't get enough light for details to be seen.
What are you buying?
This is something you need to check when you buy. Are you getting everything you need for what you want to do. Many telescopes don't come with filters, essential extra's you'll need. If you want to spend time looking at the Moon then you will need a filter to reduce glare so you can see details.
It's never advised to look at the Sun directly through a telescope but you can buy filters to protect your eyes. However, we would not recommend this to beginners because incorrectly fitted solar filters, cheap poorly made ones, a slight scratch or crack can all damage your eyes permanently. If you want to look at the Sun do it indirectly by using a card.
Get a solid base.
You can have the best telescope around but it means nothing if you have a poor tripod or base. When you look at your budget make sure you make a good allowance for your tripod. There's nothing worse than looking at stars and planets that are wavering around because of a flimsy tripod.
