I am from Bangladesh, currently living abroad. I know very little about Astronomy and Telescope. Astronomy is my main hobby.

Regarding your question. It depends on your demand of research and darkness of the sky of your area. There are two types of instrumental requirement, visual and Astrophotography.

Visual: Planets, moon, sun , DSO (deep sky objects). Viewing DSO will require short focal length with large optics let say 5” optics or more with f/5, Viewing Moon don’t require large optics. Viewing Planets require large optics with long focal length minimum 5” f/10. Sun don’t require large optics telescope but the scope will require solar filter on it, it is not expensive but if you want to see even more details, Ha (Hydrogen-Alpha filter is the answer, it is much more expensive then the telescope itself, let say few hundred dollars to thousands.

Astrophotography: practice makes perfect. Need to learn lots, also lots of $$$$ require to spend. Most money will spend on the mount. 80mm ED Telescope can take decent picture of DSO. 80mm Ed will cost about $400 to $800+ depends on the quality, mount will cost few thousands, Autoguider, guide telescope and DSLR or CCD CAMERA, and a Computer. Total cost few thousands $.

Be honest with you $60 telescope? you will not be pleased with it.

Thank you

I love it! I also love looking at the Moon sometimes. It feels like your all alone and it's peaceful just to look at something so beautiful like Outer Space. i've wanted to be an Astronaut ever since i was six. It was just so cool to learn about Space!

Astronomer - "Astronomy Makes Me Happy!"

I just ADORE astronomy. I have a tiny telescope and when I look at the top of the Spire (It's a giant pole in the middle of Dublin, Ireland. Te top and middle of it light up at night), it's like looking at a group of powerful, beautiful stars. And here is some information:

Stars look white, but are in fact red, yellow and blue.

Blue is the hottest, at more than 10,000 degree celsius,

Red is the coldest, at either 2,000 or 4,000 degree celsius.

Astronomy is a different science.It's wonderful.People may say :: "come on!what is the usage of observing stars?!" But it's more than these things.For instants Astronomy helps scientists to doubt on accepted scientific facts.
