So you are looking for a telescope, perhaps for yourself or someone else (child, sibling, loved one) and are confused? Well, we are here to help.
Perhaps a recent news article spawned an interest in astronomy; perhaps something else attracted them to this hobby. Either way, a telescope has come to mind.
As a public service, the we have collected some Internet Sites that discuss how to purchase your first telescope: what to look for, what to avoid, etc., in choosing your instrument.
WARNING! — DO NOT buy a telescope at Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, Meijer, Sears, etc. They sell junk, and this will ruin your experience very quickly.
