im a newbie to the fascinating world of telescopes,
tho have done my homework,
and read most introductory websites on the subject,
and learned the sky basics.
i live in a big polluted city (atlanta),
in a small apt,
and am thinking about getting my 1st telescope.
most important factor is that it is a grab-n-go scope w/ a top image,
- dont care so much about price (with limits on the $1000),
- dont want something heavy, that takes time to assemble, to cool, to collimate, to align, to pick on a gps...
- dont want GOTO/electronic features, rather spend it on a better image.
the usual scope for virgins,
are out for me.
what should i go to?
