Finding the Right Beginner’s Celestron Telescope

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

If you have always had an interest in astronomy or have a child that is interested in stargazing, the first thing you are to need to invest in is a decent telescope. You don’t have to rush out and spend a fortune to get one; you will find that for a beginner a Celestron Telescope will more than fit the bill. Just like most things you can find these telescopes in a range of prices.

You need to know that going to one of your local stores is not likely to be the best way to shop for a Celestron Telescope. While you may be able to find the model you are after, you are likely to end up paying far too much for it. Rather than do this, you can shop online at Telescopes.net, where you will find the prices much lower and have your new telescope shipped right to your front door in a matter of days.

Astronomy Cameras Let You Share Your Observations

Monday, November 28th, 2011

The only thing that could be better than spending hours searching the night sky, studying your favorite planets and constellations, would be the ability to share what you are seeing with others who have the same interests. For many years the only astronomy cameras available were film type and generally this was no more than a 35mm camera mounted on an adaptor plate that let you take single pictures.

Modern astronomy cameras are CCD video cameras that have been designed specifically for use with telescopes and are capable of taking both single pictures and video recordings that can show a meteor shower in all of its glory with such clarity that you can stream the images online to anyone who shares your interest. You can even take these amazingly crisp images, load them onto a USB flash drive and have your local print shop turn them into stunning posters for your wall or to give away as gifts.
