Equipment

You do not need to own a telescope to join the group. We especially welcome beginners.

The most important piece of equipment you need is your eyes. If you are a beginner, that is all you will need to begin astronomy. Apart from these the most some astronomers have is a pair of binoculars. You do not needs lots of expensive kit. If you choose to go further we have almost all possible types of available telescope and equipment owned by the members of the group. Some members prefer visual astronomy whilst some enjoy astrophotography. There is not one "best" telescope. Before you make a purchase, come and have a look at the different types. You will be able to make a wiser choice.

 

On the links below is some of the equipment owned by group members.
