Quote:I am a beginner and have been looking at scopes and I spoke to a local amateur who said that in this general area (Northern Westchester 45 miles north of NYC) the skies are only clear in winter when its very cold outside. For the rest of the year and especially in the summer conditions for decent viewing are very poor.
First and foremost observing love: naked eye.
Last but not least, telescopes.
And I sometimes dabble with cameras.
