All telescopes are compromises in one way or another, but all experts agree that telescopes are not built ~I" strictly for magnification. If a manufacturer hypes the power that a telescope can attain as the chief reason for purchasing the 4t , scope, stay away from that product The most important attribute of a telescope is its ability to g,'tther more light than the human eyemore light to see deeper into space. In addition, a good telescope will bring the light collected by a mirror or a lens to a crisp, contrasty focus in a comfortable manner. The eye, acting as the receptor of the gathered photons, essentially becomes as large the surface of the light-gathering area of the telescope. Department store scopes like those sold at K-Mart or Wal-Mart are, simply put, overpriced and poor performers attached to unstable mounting systems that quickly drive potential enthusiasts to other hobby interests. Manufacturers like Orion, Celestron, Explore Scientific, and Meade produce good instrumentation in the $300 to $600 bracket, and all havd good websites hyping their products. My suggestion,, if you're thinking about a scope for Christmas, is to visit a retail store that exclusively sells telescopes and talk to a knowledgeable individual who knows the market and can make appropriate suggestiuns. Places like these are few and far between, but locally serving the Greater Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley regions is Skies Unlimited (skiesunlimited.com) in Pottstown, PA, at 52 Glocker Way, 19465 (888-947-2673). I was just there this past Friday, Dec. 9, and they had "tons" of used and- new equipment on their showroom floor, real telescopes, and many at affordable prices. Talk to Bob, Ted, or Dave for a no pressure introduction to the telescope market. Skies has treated me and Moravian College very fairly and will do the same for you.
