I ,my name is Mike , i'm a newbie here and the reason i joigned this forum is that i just bought my first telescope an hour ago.
With a $600 budget (can) and after spending days on reviews , i went for a Orion space probe 130 ST .
I live near Mt Tremblant , in Quebec Canada , wich is a good place for viewing , away from light pollution.
The reviews said that the parabolic miror on the space probe is of very good quality fro the price range.I also bought a Celestron
6mm omni serie lens and a Neewer 2X Barlow lens to complete my kit for deep space probing.
Also , i can buy later on a computorized base if i really like astronomy.
Is ther any additional equipement that i should be considering?
Did i made a good choice of telescope and lens?
Looking forward to exchange with you guys!
I'm not 100% bilingual , so if i make any mistakes in my writing , sorry about it , but working on it , and here is a good place to practice.
