I have always been fascinated by space. My family would always comment on me being a night owl. I spent a lot of that night time gazing at the skies. For the last few years I have been wanting to get a telescope. The area we live in at the moment gets really nice and dark and has very little light pollution. Perfect for star gazing. Does anyone here own a telescope or have experience with them? I'm a complete newbie when it comes to this. The only thing I do know is that it will be an expensive hobby, but that's ok! What should one look for in a telescope, especially being new to the whole star gazing thing? Good/ bad models? Are the ones you can take pics with worth it? Any input will be appreciated!
