Further to my post about the Skywatcher flexible 130 p, I am now looking at a short focus tefractor. I am 70 years old so can only manage to carry a fairly lightweight telescope into my back garden.
I am interested in viewing the moon, double stars, bright planets and the brighter star clusters.
I am looking to purchase one of the following
Celestron travel scope 70
Bresse r Classic 70/350
Skywatcher mercury 705 70mms.
I understand that these telescopes have limitations, but they the only ones in my price range.
Any comments or advice would be welcome.
I had bought this in the hope that i will do astro trips more often. Hasn't happened and i use my avx at home. So this is not finding much use.
An extremely portable setup, the mount with weight and tripod leg spreader fits in a shoe box. The stock nuts have been replaced by winged nuts for easy grip in the dark.
One of the tripod's legs suffered a slight damage, but I've taped it well and does not affect its performance.
I will include the computer connecting cable as well as polemaster adapter.
You can read its review here:
Will prefer pickup from London as the postage may be tricky due to the tripod
You just like me can probably feel that some days feel boring. How to remedy this? Well you can go and listen to different seminars, here are two that I listened to recently. It is about spectra from stars and exoplanets.
I made some notes and took some photos:
Hope you can find something similar in your locality where you live.
