I've been doing a fair amount of research, there's so much to learn!! I'm asking if you had $4000 budget and had to start from scratch how would you spend it?
My interests are astronomical and not terrestrial
I live in a light pollution area, outside of Orlando FL
I currently have No equipment so need to assemble my rig from scratch.
Here's what I'm leaning toward but wanted to hear from you all before I pull the trigger.
1. Oberwerk BT-100XL-ED Binocular Telescope
2. Oberwerk TR3 Hardwood Tripod for XL Series
3. Oberwerk XL Fork Mount
4. Additional Oberwerk 22mm and 7mm EP
I'm not tied to the Binocular idea completely (for those with telescope ideas) .. I do like the idea of ease of use, ability to compensate for light pollution, and that the BT 100XL - ED seemed to be able to capture most viewable objects in the sky
also, I'm pretty handy and can entertain DIY projects.
Thank-you very much for your time & consideration!
