I just bought my first real astronomy telescope: Skywatcher 6'' DOB Telescope
To begin my journey in astronomy, I think I need buy some accessories.
After reading many articles in the forum, I made several choices below, but still need advice on remaining accessories.
Barlow lens: GSO 2'' 2* ED Barlow Lens - $75
Filter: DGM NPB 2'' UHC filter - $150
Flashlight: Orion redbeam flashlight -$24
Planisphere: Orion star target planisphere - $7 (I know this may not be necessary, since we have mobile apps such as Sky Safari etc. But I just try to use traditional method to learn some skills)
Books: Turn Left at Orion - $25; Night Watch - $21 (These 2 books will come first, hope I can retain my interest after I read these books.)
Even the telescope come with 2 1.25'' EP, 25mm and 10mm separately, I still want to buy a 2'' EP (since I bought SkyWatcher because of the 2'' focuser, why stuck on 1.25'' EP, right?). Could you please recommend one low power 2'' EP for nebulae or galaxy, and one high power 2'' EP for planet view? Budget would be around $50~$150 each.
I know the best way to learn what to buy, is to join local stargazing club, and try different sets. But just personally prefer on starting play on my own equipment.
And please also leave advice if you think I missed any necessary accessories for beginners.
