You need to have skills in mathematics and computer sciences. Astronomy is a course provided at many colleges, and to become professional, requires a degree. The more education, the better, and one leader is Harvard. Others such as the University of Arizona, Cal Tech, and the University of Hawaii have top of the line courses.

Your LOCAL Astronomy Club! Join NOW!

As the Treasurer for one of the largest Astronomy clubs in the USA, I can tell you that NOTHING has helped me along with the Astronomy hobby more than the CLUB! and it's members.

Most large Astronomy clubs have:

Monthly meetings where all things about the club and the hobby are discussed.

Free star parties where members set-up their telescopes and show the sky to the general public. They share all manner of information about the hobby to the people who attend the star party.

Some club's have a "dark sky" location, usually a large field, where members can take their telescopes away from city light pollution and really SEE the sky! Our club has a bunkhouse, meeting room, and domed observatory with a 16 inch computer controlled telescope at it's dark sky site. Additionally we have several nice loaner scopes at the site that the members can use for free.

Many clubs, ours included, have close ties with a local college or university. Our club is sponsored by the Physics Department of a nationally known university. We use a campus lecture hall with full multi-media facilities to hold our monthly meetings.

The club offers member discounts on the two major Astronomy magazines - Astronomy, and Sky and Telescope.

Most club's have Special Interest Groups called SIG, that specialize in certain aspects of the hobby; like Public Observing, Astro-Photography APSIG, and Amateur Telescope Making ATMSIG. You can get specialized assistance with whatever interests you, or join others and show the sky to the general public at a local star party!

What does this all COST? Not very much really! Our club dues are $40 per year. A very small price to pay for access to the dark site observatory, and speakers at our monthly meetings; along with all the other club activities.

So my advice to you would be to JOIN a local Astronomy club and get involved with it's activities. The Astronomical League has a list of clubs BY STATE, at this web site:

Join now BEFORE you purchase your first telescope. The members will help you purchase the right one to fit your Astronomy interest.

Binoculars make a GREAT first "Telescope"!

For beginners in the Astronomy hobby we usually recommend that they buy a nice pair of either 7x50mm binoculars, or 10x50mm binoculars as their first 'telescope".

Additionally they should buy one or two Astronomy books, one of which should be a star chart. You will use the star chart and the binoculars to learn a little bit about the night sky BEFORE you buy your first telescope.

Good books:

Objects in the Heavens by Peter Birren-

Sky & Telescope Star Atlas-

Turn Left at Orion-


Spend a few months learning the sky with the binoculars and JOIN a local Astronomy club. The members will help you learn the sky and you will get to look through their telescopes and decide on which one you should purchase. Did you know that the Astronomical League gives awards for completing several different observations using binoculars! Join your local AL Astronomy club to learn about observing awards using only binoculars!

Just bought a telescope without the manual. Do not know how to use it or where to start

The manual would only have assembly instructions. It will NOT tell you how to USE the telescope. Contact a local Astronomy club and the members will help you with the scope.

Where can I buy a USED telescope?

Once you get involved with the amateur Astronomy hobby, you will probably have more than ONE telescope. It's just like the fishing hobby where you eventually have SIX rods and SEVEN reels, along with three tackle boxes!

Here are a few places to look for good used telescopes.

This is the TOP DOG of used telescopes and other astronomy equipment.

Most astronomers take very good care of their equipment. The neat thing about this web site is that the buyers rate the sellers and the sellers rate the buyers. Their rating is visible right next to their name. In any case ask for pictures of the equipment if none are posted, and call the seller to verify before sending your money. PayPal is accepted by most sellers. It will cost you $12 to join and see the full ads on the site. You will save more than $12 when you buy something!

Used-Demo- Equipment at the large Dealers
Most of the larger internet dealers maintain a list of used or open box equipment. These usually carry the NEW equipment warranty, but ask before you buy. This is a higher cost solution but most dealers will accept a RETURN if the scope is not as advertised or dead on arrival.

I purchased my Meade LX90 used from a dealer in South Carolina. I called him and worked out a deal with a 90 day guarantee on a used LX90 he had taken on consignment. The scope has been trouble free for over 3 years now; and arrived in perfect condition. several used sellers on this web site. see the used link at the top of the page and-or call them this guy has dozens of used scopes along with thousands of "parts".

Call around to the larger internet retailers and see what they have used in stock that might be of interest to you.

Your local Astronomy Club-
Another good place to find used equipment is your local Astronomy club. The members are always looking to upgrade and to help fund the upgrade by selling their usually GREAT scope equipment.

This web site lists Astronomy Clubs by State:

Contact the President of your local club and tell him what you are looking to buy. Most club's have a private member's only internet forum where equipment is listed for sale.

Yes, from time to time a nice telescope will show up on this web site! BUT! you must know what you are buying. Most of the scopes on are junk telescopes that you do not want to own. You must be careful with your purchase as "scams" are known to exist on this web site. Buyer BEWARE!

I bought a very nice Celestron C6-SGT scope and mount on, but I called the owner and checked out the scope before handing over my money.

Hope this helps you find that FIRST or SECOND telescope at the lowest price possible.

Clear Skies!

Blury Meade DS 90mm refracting telescope.

Did you break the mirror? --- or did you knock it out of alignment with the small secondary mirror in the front of the tube?

Contact someone at a local astronomy club to help you with collimation on the scope if nothing is broken.
