Powering a telescope using a suitable battery source rather than mains power has the advantage that the telescope, without the restriction of a mains lead, becomes both portable and safer - due to the absence of at least one tripping hazard! Lead-acid batteries have the disadvantage of being excessively bulky and heavy and in my experience have a relatively short life.

Not only was it the best price at the time of searching but also promised a swift delivery, which meant I might still make for some Pink Moon spotting

Is it worth buying an astronomy telescope for under £150? .. I’ve chosen to look at the Celestron Inspire 70AZ Refractor telescope, an entry level telescope from a leading optical manufacturer Celestron

Beginners Telescope - My name is Finlo I am a 60 year old kid and love Big Boy toys. I have always had an interest in the planets and stars. I used to think I would like a beginners telescope, but the ones I saw were so expensive, if I didn't like it then it would be a waste of money.

I couldn’t wait to get the new Skywatcher Explorer 130P GoTo Telescope out of the box and put it to the test this week – I even got to take it home with me for a night! Thankfully, for a change, the skies were clear. First things first, this is a magnificently simple little telescope to use, but has the optical power and performance that would easily satisfy advanced observers, making it ideal for newbies and veterans alike. I’d class myself as somewhere in between the two, so it’s in…very capable hands.
