My astronomical experience

I have, in the last 6 years gained more and more experience with telescopes and all fields of astronomy. Although i am hardly a professional i do have a very good working knowledge of telescope types and use as well as observing practices. I have been using all the equipment mentioned on this site along with other equipment at star parties. Read on for the first section of my review.

The Journey

The TAL 100R will be purchased second have from an advert placed in astrobuysell.com. I say will because the guy I'm buying it off of has gone on holiday for 2 weeks and cant deal with the sale util his return! I will continue this review then....
