Hello :) do you own a telescope or can you recommend a good one please?

Hey there!

I’m a lucky owner of the Bresser reflector telescope Messier NT-130. I really love it - celestial objects look great through it. But there’s the not so good part - because of the size of it I basically can’t carry it myself. (me vs the telescope)

Anyways, recommending and choosing a telescope depends on a lot of factors - cost, storage, where are you living etc. Another thing to decide is the type - the basic types are refractors, reflectors and Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes (SCT).

The best telescope is the one you use often. So I rather recommend the one you can easily carry. If you scroll down a bit on this page, you will see a list of good telescopes. Browsing telescopes here will probably help you too to understand what kind of a telescope matches you the best.

So yeah, there are a lot of things to go through and decide before buying one, but it’s so worth it. Good luck :)
