First Telescope – where do you start?

Telescope Finder Questions - Sky-Watcher AustraliaThere’s no one “perfect” telescope — just as there’s no such thing as a perfect car or a perfect house. Instead, you should choose a telescope based on your observing interests, lifestyle, and budget. Many (arguably most) good starter scopes cost $400 or more, though some superb choices are available for under $250.

We’ve put together a range of products that we recommend as suitable First Telescopes for those just beginning their galactic journey.

A Telescope Kit is an All-in-One complete package and normally will include:

  • Telescope
  • Mount
  • Relevant accessories

Take a look at our ‘First Time Buyer’s Guide’ for more information on taking that first step. It’s well worth doing your research as choosing a telescope can be complicated and overwhelming.
