Do these include lens caps or case/ bag? Does the essentials refer to cheap/ entry level.

Moot point now, but their full price is ridiculous. At near £150 I'd expect at least phase-coated optics, which is what their VP line has. £61 was good though, as about £75 would be an honest regular price for them, similar to how much you can find the quite similar Barr & Stroud 10X50 Sahara for.

The general ignorance about telescopes is on display repeatedly in television programs. I am always seeing reflectors set up back to front because no one on the set, including cameramen who ought to understand optics, knows the difference between reflectors and refractors. I just saw an old episode of Death in Paradise where the female detective looks through the finder scope on a reflector, backwards, and her supposed view onscreen is represented as a highly magnified upright image. The main optics are of course pointed at her shoulder.

GlentoranMark

A post I created for another forum: Why cheap scopes are good for our hobby. I'm on a deals website and from time to time there is a cheap telescope deal. I used to be an aperture snob and knock every cheap scope down but I've totally changed my mind. Even posters on here, who had the forsight of joining this forum are blinded by the scope they want - they'll ask advice and then ignore it because they just want a telescope. People get knocked for ignoring advice and this puts people off either asking or worse, the hobby. I too have fallen into this trap. Years ago I wanted a Celestron 130 Goto scope. I'm totally light polluted (and I mean totally) but I wanted a Goto because I love the subject and I thought a Goto would help me find the objects under light polluted skies. The company I bought from didn't have the 130 so I bought the 102SLT instead. I could have waited but I wanted a Goto therefore I must have a Goto! While the 102 has helped me see Uranus and Neptune, I rarely use it instead I use my more obvious choice of binoculars. People don't want binoculars though which in my opinion are the best choice for beginners. Nor do they want to go to their nearest club and talk to people who may give decent advice. They want a telescope and if it looks like a telescope then they must have a telescope! It doesn't matter about specs as it didn't in my case. Everyone's circumstances are also different. I've to lug my scope out and set it up and this takes a whopping 5 minutes. Wow you may think, 5 minutes but it's still a frustration when my bins are grab and go. I regularly see comments of buy a 12" light bucket when people don't know the posters circumstances. A 12" is both massive and heavy! People also don't have money to spend. I regularly see posts of "I've a £100 budget" yet the in the first post or 2 is "Here's something at £200". The sensible thing is to wait but people don't want to wait, they want things now. Imo I'd now recommend people spend as little as possible to start with. If this means a cheap £30 department store scope from a deals website then so be it. Let them get the scope and learn by there mistakes. Most will get frustrated and it's understandable but there are a few who will get full use and work out what they really need. For these people I salute you, we all have to learn somewhere. For some it will be a lifelong hobby. For those that have bought a department store scope, don't think of it as money wasted but as an education gained. I've seen remarkable results from something as simple as a smartphone and a 50mm binocular eyepiece. You can see and do plenty with such scopes with a little dedication and work. I'm now going to be an advocate of cheap scopes. People really don't know what they need and a £30 department scope is a much cheaper mistake than something at £300 or £3000. Thoughts?

Then long eye relief not as important then. Olympus 8x40 dpsi are well regarded for the cash, otherwise you might find some 2nd hand bargains. Pentax do some excellent models, don't think they make a bad set.

Thank you so much, she is very petite so a tripod will definitely help.

I got those binoculars for that price as the box was damaged. However they are worth the £69 that they cost new. I just looked on eBay and there's theses which are even better. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/401718912483 They're also only £70 new now which is amazing! The Skymasters 15x70. Without a doubt in my mind those are what you want, you'll see the moon's around Jupiter with those, maybe even Saturn's. *Edit at 9 she might not be able to hold these. In fact I don't think she will at all, they are a strain on even my wrists and I do manual work for a living. *Edit two get a cheap tripod and those binoculars. Job done. *Edit 3 first time I saw Saturn through them, blew my mind.

frowner

Do you have any further information on these please? My daughter wanted a telescope for her 9th birthday but reading through the thread I’m thinking she may get on better with these for our £50ish budget? Many thanks

ecuador

The 25x70's are too dark for astronomy - too much power for their aperture. If you divide the second number (aperture) by the first number (magnification), you want it to be around 5 or so for astronomy (this is the exit pupil, or the cone of light that enters your eye, in mm). If you are under 30 years old so your pupil can dilate more, you'd ideally even want it up to 7, as in 7x50, 10x70 etc. For 70mm, 12x70 is probably the sweet-spot. Be aware that the higher the magnification and greater the weight the less possible it is to hand hold binoculars. The 10x50 are considered the maximum handheld - although I personally never go over 8x, since I find even 10x to require effort to hold still. For over 10x you definitely need a tripod.

pelaquin

No they are the 12x70's which are £69.99.

Andyd001

My point is, using myself as an example, i dont have a local club to ask anyone and i dont know anyone with a telescope either. I didnt ask online but have read dozens of responses to people who have and they all say the same thing and the asker is never any wiser for asking. Its usually an opportunity for experts to spout a ton of technical data way beyond the comprehension of a beginner. Take Ecuador s slide show about buying a telescope, its enough to put you off for life. Tnheres nothing positive to say and its contradictory, going from dont buy cheap japanese to japanese scopes are good. Everything has a but after it, UK Orion were good but not now... meade are ok but the japs bought it etc. I would say never ask an expert what scope to buy because t bybey have either forgot since they moved so far on or they will assume your Patrick Moore and talk techno beyond your understanding. They will never reccomend anything. Personally i would suggest buying second hand and making sure the mirror is clean, avoid anything resembling a toy. So dont buy anything from national geographic, tasco or bresser anything else will do for long enough to see if you like it. Celestron, who cares if its not a pure design and their eyepieces are 17th century as long as you can see the moon and saturns rings and the polar regions of mars... Astronomy experts are just brim full of how we dont understand this or that and its always negative never enlightening and engaging. They are aston martin drivers and your asking them what kind of banger to get for your first car. Its beyond their reality, to be fair its not their fault, that question about what first scope is the only one they see from beginners because once asked they will forever avoid asking such an expert again so they put all their effort and kniwledge into answering what should be a simple question. Like, no one asked what not to buy and why did they?

Damian66

Got to start somewhere so beginner is the usual term- save yourself a world of pain and money and not buying a shit scope you shall use twice - speak to people at your local club that do this night in night out and you’ll find out two things the scope for you and if you want to spend money carrying on in the hobby- Also anyone that asks you when you’re a “beginner” to ignore anyone giving advice about being a “beginner” should be ignored.

Andyd001

For beginners ignore all advice that begins with -for beginners, this phrase guarantees you a load of complicated advice that makes getting a look through a telescope seem impossible after all the hoop jumping and clauses and do this and this etc Get something you can return easily if your not happy.

Damian66

For Beginners; Find your local Astronomy club and go to one of their evenings you’ll see a plethora of scopes and will gain invaluable advice as to whether you’re a local (solar system) or traveller (deep space objects) type of viewer and that will save a world of pain when choosing the type and the cost of scope. Try Wolas if in London there are many clubs through out the country. Refractor man myself.

ecuador

That is correct, binoculars correct the +/-, so hyperopia/presbyopia and myopia, but will not correct astigmatism. The issue is though that you'd have to use them by yourself. As an eyeglass wearer I make sure my binoculars are appropriate to use with glasses on, as when I am with others we all use glasses if we need them so a single focusing for good eyesight means people pass them around without having to refocus.
