What is the Best Telescope to Buy?


There are several characteristics you’ll want to pay attention to when buying a telescope, including:


Focal Length

  • This helps determine a telescope’s focal ratio and field of view which impact how far you will be able to see.

Aperture

  • The aperture determines the quality and amount of light your telescope or optical tube assembly (OTA) will capture.

Telescope style

  • Reflecting telescopes are reliable and versatile with their use of mirrors to capture light.
  • Refracting telescopes use lenses and come in popular styles such as achromatic and apochromatic.
  • Catadioptric telescopes combine lenses and mirrors into one cohesive optical tube assembly.

These factors make each telescope unique, providing a different viewing experience.
