Awesome, thanks.

Guys, you don't need to spend a lot of money to see Saturn and the moon as clear as this with your own telescope. Saturn has been fantastic viewing over the past few months and just about any telescope will give you an amazing show.

Be warned though, stargazing is addictive and will become an expensive habit. The telescope you love one day is not big enough the next. Not that this is a bad thing


If you live in Australia now is the perfect time to buy one because you can get top of the range Telescopes & equipment online from the US for around 1/3 of the price you will pay here.

Thanks Bob for posting a very simple and natural video of our moon and of Saturn. I couldn't help but notice around the 1:29 point that a shadow appears to the left of the moon and moves away, then I think around 1:47 a similar shadow appears. Very cool. I wonder if there is a way to for you to find remnants of the Appolo landing sites and some of the equipment that was left behind? You had some beautiful close-up shots. That would be awesome if you could find those remnants. Otherwise, very nice video, I enjoyed it very much and Saturn is just magnificent. Thank you for posting. Applause!!!!


I wondered when someone would ask about taking a picture of the Apollo sites(underlined above) as this always happens on this type of thread, EVEN the Hubble cant, the smallest object Hubble can resolve at the distance of the Moon is around 300ft the lander is around 15 ft across!.

The LRO probe has taken pictures here is an example posted by member jra

files.abovetopsecret.com...

The top half of the picture is from the film shot by Apollo 17 as it left the Moon the bottom half from the LRO passing over the site , look at the tracks left by the Astronauts on the pictures, almost 40 yrs have passed between the top and bottom images being taken.

I was thinking to myself while waching this.. all the youtube videos of buildings and ufo´s on the surface of the moon. and thats even not as sharp as this one..

one should think it would be easy to spot buildings and ufo with this kind of footage.. sadly I did not see any


Sorry but you are so mistaken think about it at even 5000x magnification how far away would the moon look

238,000/5000 = 47.6 so it would still look 47.6 miles away at 47.6 miles how big would a building need to be to see it! Sometimes you just have to do the maths!

that was great..better yet epic!

I know i should've bought my telescope last year, when my personal economy was better.

wow! i was able to get fairly decent video footage of the moon with just a personal camera, but i have no editing skills at the moment, so they just sit on my computer. when free money arrives, i'll surely make a telescope on my list of things to buy.

Thanks!! XFilesTheTruth


The shadow's are very high clouds in the sky, this footage could be a lot better when there was no atmospheric interference (best is wintertime to make this kind of footage)

This footage is very close but still so far far away to see some remains of Appolo landing or equipment that was left behind.

I promise when the weather is good and in winter time, i will make a vid from the site's in close up

I don't know all that much about telescopes. I never had one until recently and it is an antique but I love it! It's actually really nice and came with a lot but I am not sure how to use most of it. Im just learning. I always wanted one and my friend had this particular one, it was his first telescope as a kid in the 60s so when he moved he gave me the telescope. He said he knew I was the only person who would take care of it
and he is right, I won't let anyone touch it lol

I don't mind spending the money on accessories so to speak because I love this stuff. It's always been an interest but never had the right equipment. I also want one that I can record from too



I will check ebay out as well as the kind you mentioned, thanks.

Thanks ahmonrarh


Before you buy, get first some good advice, ask people who own a telescope, and don't ask it to your local telescope store that will be a waste of money.

Ill be honest with you, i am avoiding this thread as it is so tempting for me to dive into this area but i am at a disadvantage as noone i know come's remotely close to owning let alone stargazing out for my friends. So ill just ask away here since you seem to be on the ball, being a complete ametaure and not having any previous experience with a budget of 5k, what would you recommend to person like myself. Keep in mind, i am within my 40's so not as if ill be buying a motorbike for the kicks.
