Answering some common questions about buying a first telescope.
Q13 FOX interviewed me for about 10 seconds last night about the LCROSS Mission. Have fun!

Awesome video Alice, :-)
Okay, so … what if you convinced someone to buy binoculars instead: What binoculars do you recommend?
(Also, I’ll bet the actual interview with Q13 lasted a lot longer than 10 seconds….)
Yes the interview lasted a few minutes and was a lot of fun. I taught that reporter pretty much everything she said during the piece as well, and they used the animated footage I recommended. I feel like I had quite a bit of influence over that story.
Binoculars – start with the pair you have laying around, or the pair your neighbor has laying around. If you’re ready to move a step up from that: I’ve been happy with 7x50s made by a company with a good reputation for decent optics. Advice on buying optical equipment. Once you’re beyond that, you’re ready for a first telescope. In fact, once you’ve outgrown the little binocs you just grabbed from somewhere you’re probably ready for a scope.
which one? Mine or Q13s?
