Did you know you have to let your telescope get used to the outdoor temperature? It needs about an hour outside before you start viewing.
One of the best points I learned from this video is that it’s good to leave your telescope (in a safe area, of course) outside for about an hour before you start viewing through it. That way the lenses are less likely to fog up.
My telescope is a treasured possession. Although it is not a new telescope, it still works okay for me. I can’t think of giving it up. However, I do believe I want to get one with the computer software that’ll find and track the planets and constellations for me. Then again, I feel very knowledgeable when I do this stuff on my own and it’s great fun. Sometimes I think we rely on computers so much that we forget to use our brains.
So, maybe the best solution to this matter would be to buy another more up-to-date computer and have two telescopes. Got any suggestions for me?
