    Default Hi from Chile!



    Hi, I'm Jorge, I live in the north of Chile. I always loved space in general, some days ago I took an astronomical tour in San Pedro de Atacama, near ALMA complex and realized that I have to take advantage of the sky we have, so I'm going to buy a Celestron Advance VX 8" SCT.
    I've been reading a little bit, but at the same time relied that there's a lot to learn!!!
    I hope to learn with you and to share some of my views here.

    Jorge.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.
    I'll be buying my telescope tomorrow, I'm anxious about it!

    Read a little, not sure if it was the best decision but I already bought the Orion Eyepiece kit, I'm not sure if they are the best quality, but I think it'll be good for a beginner right?
    I saw what I should be able to do here:

    http: // astronomy.tools/calculators/ field_of_view

    I think that with more experience I'll buy better ones.
    I know I have to read all the forums yet!

    I'm also thinking about getting the Celestron Power Tank Lithium, maybe a little expensive, but looks like a good solution for me.

    Thanks again for the warm welcome!
