This month’s Presentation:
Trevor Chandler (KW-RASC)
What Telescope Should I get?
Most of us have been asked this question. The answer is not as straightforward as it might seem. Beginners, and even advanced amateurs in our hobby, are faced with a wonderful but sometimes dizzying array of telescopes from which to choose. In this presentation, we’ll attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff and understand better the choices that are available to us. And we’ll look at some of the other gear that, alongside a great telescope, can enrich our enjoyment of getting to know the night sky.
