    Looking for a good telescope...
    I'm 52 and I've recently come to realize that I have NEVER looked up at the night sky through a telescope to see the wonders around us. Can anyone recommend a decent telescope that will allow a decent field of vision and not break my wallet? Thanks, in advance, for any answers or opinions!

    What price range, if you make 400,000 a year or 30,000 a year ?

    Actually looking to keep it at under $500.00 if I can find one that's truly decent for that kind of a price.

    You may also check your area for a club or association that meets and may have larger equipment that belongs to the club.

    Thanks for the links, Fr. I'm also going to do a little research and see if there are any stargazing clubs in the area I can hook up with.
