Getting a telescope for Christmas?

Christmas is approaching rapidly and you may be considering getting a telescope. But which one, which eyepiece, mirror or lens, tripod mounts, what size? These are questions we often get asked at the Bristol Astronomical Society. BAS Observing Director, Dr. Jane Clark has put together this useful guide to explain the differences, and what to look for.

If you are still unsure after reading Jane's guide, then do consider paying us a visit in 2016 to one of our star parties, free Saturday evening observatory sessions, or our telecope surgery events. We also run talks and lectures throughout the year on most friday evenings. Check our Programme page for more information.

In the meantime, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the BAS!
