TELESCOPES & BINOCULARS FOR NIGHTTIME USE

B. TELESCOPES & BINOCULARS FOR NIGHTTIME USE:

Binoculars can also be used for astronomical use. When so used, it is often desirable to mount the binoculars on a tripod, especially to utilize the higher power range types, say, of 10 to 12 power. Full size binoculars of 40mm and larger (all the way up to 100mm or more) are typically preferred in order to gather more light to make those sky objects more visible. Wide fields aren’t critical, but nothing can beat a widefield view of the Milky Way through a good pair of binoculars.

Small telescopes are a good way to get in a lot of viewing hours under the stars. They’re small and light—often called “Grab’N’Go”—you can leave the telescope set up, pick up the whole thing and take it outside, and be observing in only a minute or two.

Large scopes (8” and larger diameter) aren’t so easily moved, but have the advantage of gathering more light. Objects in the sky, with the exception of the planets and the Moon (or Sun, of course), are usually faint. Gathering more light brings them into visibility and makes more details visible in the brighter objects. Resolution (the ability to see small details) improves with size too, so the bigger telescope sees smaller details in all objects, while seeing them all more brightly. Of course, there is always the compromise of weight and size that comes with aperture. The Scope City experts will help you choose the best size for your viewing uses.
