You can get a good telescope for anywhere from $100 to $1,100. This telescope costs $110. The three biggest telescope manufactures that come to mind are Meade, Celestron, and Orion though there are plenty more out there that make amazing telescopes.

A word of warning, this is common with nearly, if not all budget telescopes. The telescopes may be of good quality but often the eyepieces and barlows are hot garbage.

I would recommend using the eyepiece with the highest focal length. The telescope I linked comes with a 20mm and 4mm eyepiece. I suspect the eye relief on the latter is practically unusable.

If you find that you are enjoying the telescope but you don't want to spend too much more money, you could get a good barlow and more eyepieces. A barlow like this is a good barlow. For eyepieces, Sirius Plossl eyepieces are of good quality and are decently priced.

I still have a ways to go but I wanted to share my progress after all the support I recieved over my first photo. [R]

I sent op's image to my brother, who has a Celestron 127eq. He said he's seen Saturn similar to the image on the left, not quite as good. He's also been able to see a couple of Jupiter's moons.

Not as nice as OP's scope, but it will get you looking at planets, and might be easier to aspire to.

Greetings, /r/astrophotography! Welcome to our Weekly Ask Anything Thread, also known as WAAT?

The purpose of WAATs is very simple : To welcome ANY user to ask ANY AP related question, regardless of how "silly" or "simple" he/she may think it is. It doesn't matter if the information is already in the FAQ, or in another thread, or available on another site. The point isn't to send folks elsewhere...it's to remove any possible barrier OP may perceive to asking his or her question.

Here's how it works :

  • Each week, AutoMod will start a new WAAT, and sticky it. The WAAT will remain stickied for the entire week.
  • ANYONE may, and is encouraged to ask ANY AP RELATED QUESTION.
  • Ask your initial question as a top level comment.
  • ANYONE may answer, but answers must be complete and thorough. Answers should not simply link to another thread or the FAQ. (Such a link may be included to provides extra details or "advanced" information, but the answer it self should completely and thoroughly address OP's question.)
  • Any negative or belittling responses will be immediately removed, and the poster warned not to repeat the behaviour.
  • ALL OTHER QUESTION THREADS WILL BE REMOVED PLEASE POST YOUR QUESTIONS HERE!

What’s a good beginner telescope to take photos of the moon?

I was thinking about this - I have an a6300. All I would need is an adapter right ?

Or are there telescopes built specifically to attach to cameras ?

I have this telescope. I went to Longrun Park and have been able to see Jupiter and some of its moons. I've also spotted Saturn and have seen the rings, but it required the highest magnifier that comes with the available accessories kit. I had to continually adjust the position of the scope to keep Saturn in view, thanks to rotation of the Earth.

Very cool, and very fun hobby.

Hello friends,

I'd love to share with you an article I wrote about the different tiers of equipment utilized in DSO imaging and what kind of images you can roughly expect from those.

You can find it here: Starting with Astrophotography Part 1: Equipment Tiers

I aimed the article for beginners to show you what is possible with different tiers of equipment and what benefits or drawbacks you have using a specific configuration. There will be several follow-ups to it with the next one being "Equipment Suggestions" and following that "A Full Imaging Process" with low-tier equipment.

What do you think about the article? Was it helpful for you? Is there anything specific you would love to see in it or in the planned follow-ups to that?

What equipment tier do you see yourself in with your equipment? How do you feel about the categorization with tiers and levels I drafted?

Feel free to share your own taken pictures of the night sky and your equipment! I'd be really glad if you would add the equipment used to that as well, so I can incorporate and crowdsource many different equipment configurations and suggestions for Part 2 of this series, so my suggestions are not too one sided.

I'm still reading through everything. As a photographer I thought I had a decent grasp on photo equipment. Then I started into astrophotography and I'm so lost lol. I found a great star tracker than can hold lenses up to 200mm or more but what if I wanted a tracker that could also locate planets and nebulae etc? My main uses will be for the milky way (6 minute exposures etc), but I know me all too well and will eventually want to get into planets and some deep space stuff. But I also know I probably will never get into the cooled CCD cameras etc... so lost still lol.

A present for my cousin (little clue about scope) [R]

2 years ago1ncehost posted submission on telescopes.
May 20, 2018

hello /r/telescopes/ , so my cousin turn 10 next month and he's quite interested on astronomy, so i decide to buy him a beginner scope. I live in Indonesia and all i can find either completely garbage scope (toy scope if you want) or a very expensive one. after done some quick research, i found this site that have reasonable price and can ship to my country. With little information i dig, my consideration are this scope 12 or 3 (Budget <100eur). For your informations: we live in the heavy polluted light area (Jakarta), so (cmiiw) we limited to planet & bright objects, so which one better for those objects?

2 years ago1ncehost posted comment on telescopes.
May 20, 2018

Hey, great idea introducing your cousin to astronomy! His first views through a telescope may be times he remembers for the rest of his life. :)

You may want to try Amazon's International Shipping section. It has a lot of well priced scopes!

https://www.amazon.com/International-Shipping-Direct/b/ref=asliss_tl?node=230659011&linkCode=sl2&tag=amazon123405-20&linkId=b739aa289b437281a7069081d2ffef8b

Here is my pick for your budget: https://www.amazon.com/Celestron-21049-127EQ-PowerSeeker-Telescope/dp/B0007UQNKY/ref=sr13?ie=UTF8&qid=1526851326&sr=8-3&keywords=telescope&th=1

That scope is good enough to see details on the planets (jupiter's clouds, saturn's rings) and a lot of the brighter deep space objects (nebulas, clusters, galaxies). If you go out to the country, you'll be able to see a lot of fainter objects, perhaps up to around magnitude 10.

Hope it works out!

For looking at the moon, you really don't need something crazy expensive. You could get a small dobsonian type like this for some good moon views. If you wanted to get more into looking at planets or nebulas you would want to go bigger. The one I was using to get this shot was a 10inch dobsonian which was around $600.

You don't need very much magnification at all, as they're visible with the naked eye. But if you want a really clear, detailed image, you want to collect a lot of light, so the diameter of the telescope is what really matters. The bigger the better. This one is a pretty good bang for your buck, especially if you also get this to go with it.

I know im going to get sh*t for this but i recently saw a documentary on netflix called curse of the man who sees ufos. It got me thinking, ive seen some suspicous objects in the sky before but i always figured they were planets. Anyway, im really interested in space so o want to be able to view other things like the moon and planets. It just baffles me why nobody has used a high powered telescope to look at one of these "ufos". You would be able to see it clearly and say for certain what it is.

Light pollution is the #1 problem you'll face. Something cheesy like this though can legit see the rings of Saturn.

UFOs typically fast moving. Try sighting the ISS and you will understand why people don't typically bust out a telescope to look at UFOs.

I figure with Huntsville being the Rocket City and all, I thought this would be the perfect place to ask! I'm sure there's some subreddits about this stuff and if you know of them, I'd love to check them out. But I wanted to get a telescope that isn't extremely expensive so I can share the wonders of space with my daughter. But I mean, I'm talking cheap but not a piece of shit. Maybe anything less than $100? Thanks!

 

edit: I want one that I can at least see Mars pretty well, maybe even the rings of Saturn. With that being said, are there any out there that aren't super expensive that would allow me to see that? Thanks

I also bought a $30 accessory set that came with a 9mm and 15 mm lens and some filters. i can see the main 2 stripes on Jupiter and the rings of Saturn, as well as some of the brighter dso's. You wont get Hubble images but for the price i was very happy.

Oh no. I just bought http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007UQNKY?psc=1&redirect=true&ref=odaui_detailpages00 earlier today and now I feel like I made a horrible decision.

But any telescope is an upgrade from my 26 year old refractor, and this one doesn't have the chance to have been banged around in a garage. I saw pictures people have taken with it and it looks good (not top of the line but for $150 it's good enough.) I do however plan on upgrading whenever I am more financially stable (maybe 1-2 years) so this should tide me over until then.

April 14, 2015

Looking for any advise regarding my first scope. Ideal price range is around 300-350 - but my main requirement is that I can fit the scope inside a decent sized pelican case for motorcycle touring. Anywhere up to 30 pounds is cool, and I can mount a tripod to my bike separate of the case.

No astrophotography here, my main interests are getting the best planetary views as possible. It's hard to describe, but whenever I see Saturn or Jupiter (I ride up to the Griffith Park observatory somewhat often) I just get a crazy tingly feeling all over. Would like to recreate on my camping trips.

Ideally, I'd like to find something similar size and weight as a Nexstar 6SE - but not as expensive, and something that doesn't need batteries.

Edit: Thank you all - looks like i'm most likely going with an Orion Starmax - still debating between the 102 and the 127 with an additional Expanse eyepiece. However still definitely considering the AWB onesky. Decisions....

5 years, 1 month agoSampsonRustic posted on telescopes.
April 14, 2015

I'm looking at something like this, where I could then have some cash to buy / build a nice travel case for it and all necessary accessories. Can go higher price if it helps reduce size / weight / or gives better images.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0007UQNKY/ref=psdc499154t2_B000MLL6RS

Also, this looks pretty compact for its size, and I could ditch the tripod and probably rig up some type of table top setup off the back of my bike once parked. http://www.gizmag.com/astronomers-without-borders-onesky-starter-telescope/30111/

EDIT THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED WINNER IS /u/browneyedgirl79

So I've decided my father is way cheap. And not just keeping the thermostat set at 85 in summer and 62 in winter cheap. For example, he once asked me to take a pair of $10 sandals back to walmart because the strap broke. Ok no big deal right? Well when I told them they didn't have exactly the same kind he goes yeah I guess they've changed them since 5 years ago. I was like you had me take back a pair of sandals you bought 5 years ago? He says well yeah they should last longer than that. If you are doing the math that's $2 a year for these sandals. I'd say that's a bargain. But it's even cheaper since walmart replaced them.

Any way so what I want from you. 1. Tell me how your dad or anyone in your life is super cheap.

  1. Link me the most awesomest coolest thing on your WL. Or don't this won't affect your chances as I'm lazy or on mobile most of the time and hate linking things. This May or May not be what you get.

How cheap is he? you mean how cheap is SHE! my aunt is the cheapest person I know. one example is that while getting together with her she told me she had to stop at the mall to return some outfits she bought but don't fit. I volunteer to come along and maybe do some light shopping. well we go into return the outfits (keep in mind what year it currently is). she has the recipts for all so that's good but then she takes the outfits out of a bag. one is from 1995, one from 1997, and one from 2001. yep. they didn't even know what to do with the one from 1995 because it was done with a completely different kind of credit card machine. when I had my daughter she gave me an outfit for my daughter. very nice. I ended up needing a larger size so I took the receipt and go to exchange it at the store except they wont let me because they said I needed the other 1/2 of the set. apparently they sell them in 2 packs for $8 and she only gave me 1/2 the set so she could give me the other 1/2 at a later date. then there was a lunch we were having for a family friend. everyone was chipping in to pay for the food. she ordered 2 specialty meals (for no real reason other than she just wanted them) for herself and her daughter. along with being extremely cheap shes always late for everything so she ended up showing up over an hour and a half late and then refused to pay her portion for the food because there wasn't "a lot left" even though the 2 meals she special ordered were left untouched she felt there wasn't enough other food left over for her to pay. this past week she found out another family friend was selling her car that was in almost mint condition (2009 with only 4k miles on it) because it belonged to her elderly mother who cannot drive. my aunt decided she wanted to buy it for her step daughter. not as a gift but so they could give it to her and she could pay them back...with interest! the family friend was selling the car for $12,000 originally but because she knows them knocked it down to $11,000. my uncle, who is just as cheap couldn't find anything really wrong with the car but saw the one side mirror was semi cracked from a carwash along the outer casing not even the mirror part and said he wouldn't take it for any more than $10,000. so he wanted $1,000 off for a cracked mirror casing that wouldn't cost more than $200 to completely replace even though it was not noticeable unless you looked for it, would still pass inspection, and is completely functioning. she said she would take $10,700 (so even if it costs $300 to completely fix theyd still be in the clear) and then my aunt went around the car counting up all of the scratches that no one else could see but she claimed were down to the metal and cant be buffed out and said she would ONLY buy it for $10,500. the family friend was pretty angry and then when she agreed to take $10,500 they now aren't sure if they still want it because apparently my aunts step daughter (who is a grown woman btw) is being ungrateful because she doesn't think she should have to pay them interest. now you might say that maybe they have money problems or are cheap because they don't have much. nope! they live in a huge house, have 3 cars, spend $13,000 a year on my cousins dance lessons, competitions, etc., ONLY eat organic food, and bring in over $300,000 per year. not to mention stocks, etc.

[CONTEST] I need some convincing [R]

CONTEST CLOSED

GIFTING TOMORROW WHEN I HAVE MORE ENERGY

Every year for my birthday my grandpa sends me a $50 check with instructions that I buy at least 1 thing for myself. This year being no different than any other I need to buy something. Problem is I don't like buying anything for myself. I'd much rather get something for my girls or put it towards formula which we always need. Okay so here is what you need to do:

-Go through my wish lists, find something under $50. Either link that item here or tell me what it is but convince me to buy it. It must be something I can use for myself. Use any tactic you want.

-Winner is the person who picks an item and convinces me to buy it

-Must have posted an intro

-Must have gifted at least once

-I'm picking something from your list so don't link anything and make sure your list is in your flair.

-Ends 4/10 (my birthday)

I think you should buy this And I know it's more than $50. But, after having purchased a very similar scope within the last few weeks, I wish I had gotten it sooner. It is so much fun going out after dinner and looking at the stars, reminding me that, although I feel so small and insignificant sometimes, maybe someone, something, out there...is watching me the same way, feeling the same things. And I don't feel so alone after all. Not so mention being able to see something so vast, so spectacular...a little closer and sharper. Treat yourself. It's worth it.

  1. I don't expect you to gift me this, I'm just linking it because its the telescope that's been on my wish list. feel free to share yours after so I can compare :D

  2. I'm going to guess you'll have $8.15 left over

My daughter got everything she asked for for Christmas! Model of the space station (MIR), a model of the shuttle and a telescope! Happy girl :) [R]

My dad is of age (55), and is currently stressed from work to the point of taking time off. He suffers from arthritus and struggles to do physical activity like woods craftmanship which hes shown interest in. Hes an engineer and has no interedt in fishing or collecting things. Is there anything out there for him ? Any advice would be great.

How about buying an amateur telescope and going stargazing every once in a while? Trust me, he'll love it.

Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Celestron-21049-127EQ-PowerSeeker-Telescope/dp/B0007UQNKY/ref=sr13?ie=UTF8&qid=1387569009&sr=8-3&keywords=telescope

Hey Guys!

I'm currently hunting for a telescope. I'm an aboslute novice in the subject, and after combing through /r/astronomy I figured i'd check out if you guys had any opinions?

Looking for something pretty affordable, and preferably something that comes with a backpack or some carrying case. Amateur astronomy usage: moon/planets + maybe some constellations. Any advice? :D

Anyone else trying out some new hobbies? Post em!

Wow seriously??

Does it come with any carying case type of thing? I'm hoping for a backpack-style one so i can load it in the car easily

this one looks badass , but it again comes down to not really knowing much on the difference O:
