    Hi im Paul,

    I am just curious at the moment, I have only ever looked at stars with the naked eye and found myself interested in what the star formations are. Then reading throw the forum I realised there is allot more than just star formations to look at if you have the right equipment. What would be a good starting point equipment wise to see if I do enjoy astronomy and star gazing or just staring at the sky? Any help is much appreciated and thanks in advance.

    Hi Paul, the best thing after your eyes is a pair of binoculars, just a pair of 10×50 will suffice, at least then they can be used during the daytime as well. If you are able I would suggest coming to our Observatory one clear Wednesday and have a look through some telescopes or come along to one of our sidewalk events (none now until October 2012) before you spend on a telescope.
