Greetings. My name is Dave but everyone calls me Squirrel. I love the night sky and have been watching it for years. I've owned a small telescope in the past and plan on purchasing one soon. I am here on a very specific mission to to capture video evidence of a phenomenon I've witnessed recently.
Choose a telescope suitable to the purpose you intend for it, not just get one because it looks like a cool telescope. You'd be surprised at how many people buy the wrong telescope because it looks like 'a good one'. It will depend on what you want to do with it. Not all telescopes do the same thing. Maybe you already know this, but I thought it might be worth mentioning just in case you don't
What is the specific thing you want to Video?
