Amatuer Astronomy





yagnyavalkya
I want to know about beginners telescope in Amateur Astronomy
I intend to buy a 4.5 inch reflector
I want to know which is a better mount Equatorial or Alt azimuth or dobsonian
Is is difficult to set it up EQ mount every time I take it to the terrace to view as I have to do that
I have seen that good brands are about 100$ more in India than what it is quoted in Amazon
Should I go for an Indian telescope for a lesser price with the same specs

Newtonian reflector telescopes are good for observing the sky
with a good 6 or 8 inch telescope you can observe
the planets
Jupiter, Saturn, Mars
The gas cloud in the sword of orion and many more

I would like to buy the telescope magnifying at least 100 times and I could use it only at clear sky nights which are very rare here but sometimes they are.

Telescope are good for watching the sky the aperture is important
4.5 to 6 inch aperture is good for watching the planets and the moon
you can see the moons of Jupiter and rings of Saturn from a good telescope
The important things to consider when buying a telescope is the type of mount
there are tow main types of mounts
Equatorial and altazimuth ( Altitude and azimuth) with the equatorial mount you have to align to the pole star and tract the object which cannot be done by the altazimuth mount
A popular mount is Dobsonian which is an altazimuth mount and is good for beginners
Equatorial mount is a little for beginners as they have allign
