Aug 19, 2008
What are some of the best places to buy a telescope? What places can offer a great service, a great price, yet allow you to get the most out of the science of astronomy? Luckily there are some best places to buy telescopes. In this article, we will take a look at the best places to buy telescopes.

Buying a telescope is not always the easiest thing to do. It is not likely that you will find a local store that specializes in telescopes. I feel this makes less people to get into astronomy, simply because, it is hard to find telescopes.

Luckily, it is not that hard to find, that it is not possible. In fact, there are many places that specialize in telescopes or at least, have a good range of telescopes that are actually useful.

You see, the toy store purchased telescopes, and those telescopes you may find at a camera and binocular store, usually are of no good for long term practical astronomy. They are of low quality, and viewing anything other than the Moon, can be troublesome. We need to do a little more to get a great scientific instrument that is easy to use, and can give us many years of viewing.

There are 3 choices when looking for the best places to buy telescopes, they are:
* Specialized Stores
* Mail Order
* Online

There are benefits and negatives to all options. Let's take a look at them in detail. I hope it will help you get the best telescope for your needs, and allow you to have many years of fun in astronomy.

* Specialized Stores
Specialized stores selling telescopes can be a great way to go. It is not always easy to find them, and it is likely that you will need to go on a long journey to the store; however, it can be a great decision.

You get help from staff, and these people likely know about astronomy. They likely have telescopes, and are willing to help people get into astronomy. The only problem is price. You likely will pay high prices on a telescope, which could come much cheaper to you.

* Mail Order
Another option is mail order. Now this is easy. You see an advert and you buy. Within 30 days, you could get your telescope. Even though this option is great, it is becoming less popular, than buying online.

* Online
If you want the best places to buy telescopes, then you need to look online. Online, you can find the information you want, and at the same time, find a telescope for much cheaper, than it would cost in a specialized store.
