Hi, I'm interested in purchasing a telescope for my dad. He lives in the mountains in an area with very little artificial light at night, so you can walk at night by starlight and see perfectly fine. He'd like to use it for viewing stars and planets, but also to look at the mountains surrounding his cabin. Any suggestions?
A spotting scope would be the best bet for viewing earth, and a telescope for the stars. They are really quite different animals. A good mid-range spotting scope like the Bushnell Legend HD would work for both. To compliment the quality of your terrestrial viewing, the Celestron 90AZ would work well for an entry level astronomical viewer at an affordable price. Have fun!
Hi there..I bought my mum a Revelation 25-75x dotting scope (100mm) previous this year..it's a good compromise for both daytime viewing and night-time.They reconsidered it in the June topic of atmosphere At evening publication and it tallied 89% but was the cheapest by far.
