    Default Hi New to the world of gazing at stars



    Hi

    I'm retired military and now work for them as a civilian IM/IT and also as a Formation Webmaster. I decided to start again to try the Stars. I did alot of research through questioning on google and searching through ebay and amazon and reading the reviews of telescopes. I finally decided on, hope I didn't make a mistake, a Seben's Big Boss 1400mm-150 Reflector Telescope which also comes with a motor and 2 eyepieces and also a erecting eyepiece and filters. Well I hope to try it when it arrives from Germany probably in the new year. As long as I can see some planets and cool things then I will be happy. Well thanks for listening to my rantings .
