Frequently Asked Questions

Which beginner telescope is best for Astronomy?

Generally, a 4 inch or 100mm refractor shows deep-sky objects about as well as a 5 inch reflector or Cassegrain telescope, and might even do a bit better on the planets. Most telescopes with apertures of 80 mm or less are usually refractors.

What can I see with a beginner telescope?

A beginner telescope would typically allow you to have great views of the moon and its craters and seas, along with the larger planets in our own solar system, plus some brighter star clusters and nebulae.

Which type of beginner telescope is easiest to use?

For beginners to Astronomy, Dobsonian Telescopes are very simple to use. Their movement is controlled by a rotating base, you then move the telescope tube up and down, meaning you can point at any part of the night sky.
