Astronomy


Just getting started, trying to decide what 'scope to get, leaning toward a 125mm Meade Makutsov Cassegrain model. I like Meade scopes, so far.

I want to do the work. Full-timing means you never have to cheat. ;)

Do you know or could recommend any telephoto lens that I could use for astrophotography?

Just something I found out yesterday is that Michigan has a patch of dark sky. I didn't know that until yesterday. See the post on travels in Michigan and Wisconsin.

I've always wanted to do something like this but my knowledge on astronomy is limited.

 One is never too old to learn.  I'm 65, bought a telescope at a second hand store for about $25.00 a couple of years ago in anticipation of being able to use it when I retire.  Well I'm retired now and still haven't found time to use it because I'm getting my house ready to sell, but next spring watch out.  Not only can you look at the stars but you can scan mountains and the like too.  Good luck.
