Default Telescope Basics

We often get asked which telescope is best.

Telescope Basics @ Starizona.com


Please visit the link above. I am the Webmaster for Starizona.com also. We have compiled one of the most comprehensive explanation of all types of scopes and which ones are best for a given situation. It's easier to link you to that then duplicate all of the content in a post on the forum.
