Choosing and utilizing the recent CAT will supersede the author’s profitable Choosing and utilizing a Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope, which has loved enthusiastic help from the beginner astronomy neighborhood for the earlier seven years.
Since the 1st ebook was once released, much has replaced within the know-how of beginner astronomy. The sophistication and diversity of the telescopes to be had to amateurs has elevated dramatically. automated SCTs, Maksutov-Cassegrains, and such a lot lately Meade’s new and acclaimed Ritchey-Chrétiens have come to dominate the industry. that suggests that each one amateurs contemplating the acquisition of a brand new telescope (not just a SCT, and never simply newbies) will take advantage of this specific advisor. selecting the best telescope for specific varieties of remark (or even for basic paintings) is way from effortless – yet Rod Mollise provides helpful recommendation and guidance.
