What do I need to be able to do astronomy? Do I need a big expensive telescope? The answer is No!!

Will I be able to see things like the Hubble telescope images? Once again, the answer is No!!

Where do I start?

1) A pair of eyes. There is a tremendous amount that can be seen just using your eyes e.g. the Orion constellation in winter

2) A pair of binoculars can be the next step to see more detailed, and smaller objects. Second-hand binoculars are quite cheap

 

3) A small telescope. Once again, second-hand equipment is quite cheap, but don't waste your money on the wrong kit. Get in touch with us and ask for advice

 
   

 

 

 

After that, if you really get the astronomy bug, then there are numberous paths to go down. Once again, ask us for advice. There is no such thing as the perfect all-round telescope
