Hi, I hope I'm posting in the correct place, if not, can a Mod please move this? Thanks.
I am wanting to buy a pair of binoculars for star gazing, and seeing planes up close etc.
What kind of magnification should I get? I have absolutely no idea at all, and would appreciate some direction, as I am very new to this.
I'd say a telescope too for stargazing and plane watching. I have an old one I love for that. Don't know much about them but saw some that were
compact and looked pretty cool with the prices slashed last week at a hobby shop around here. Someone at a hobby shop might even know something about
them. Let us know!
Thankyou for the replies!
I wasn't sure about telescopes, because of being such a novice, but it does make sense that it would probably be better.
My range would probably be around €100 for now anyway, I could upgrade once I get the feel for it.
I guess my main thing, is I don't know what magnification to get. I am so excited though to get started!
If you already have a camera, you can sometimes get a telescope attachment for it. A friend of mine has one and it's awesome. Again I don't know
much about it but i might be something to look for if you do get a telescope and want this function or option.
I just checked them out, and it seems they don't stock them anymore, but it's good to know that they are around.
I think I may try hunt down a pair with a built in cam... just incase! *wishful thinking*
