I'm back after a long time of inactivity!
So, I'm really lost about which telescope to buy. (Dang it, INTP)
I started about a year ago, when I wanted to buy some of Celestron's Powerseeker models. After a bit of research, I found that the mounts were wobbly, and I didn't want that.
I then decided on getting an Orion Spaceprobe 3 because I didn't have budget to buy bigger scopes I wanted.
Then, I also found out that also had slightly wobbly mounts and the eyepieces were mediocre. I wanted a better, bigger scope but portable and inexpensive.
So I'm still deciding on two telescopes:
The AWB Onesky or the Skyquest 4.5.
I know that while the AWB Onesky has better light-gathering abilities, the Skyquest 4.5 has better optics and longer focal length.
So, which is the better telescope?
Some things to note:
- I don't want to carry things heavier than my CPU.
- I'm short (4'10).
- Maximum budget is about $350.
