A video guide to buying your first telescope

If you’re thinking about buying your first telescope – or are perhaps thinking of getting one for a friend or relative – you might be interested in the latest episode of the Sky at Night Magazine vodcast. It addresses a few of the basic questions you may have about telescopes, their various designs and how to use them.

I’ve embedded the video below, but if you have any more questions (after all, there’s only so much we could fit in one vodcast) leave a comment below, and I’ll do my best to get back to you.

For best quality playback select the 720p HD button.
