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.

I would love to talk to you.
I actually want to be an astrophysist when I'm older. If anyone wants a penpal, I would be happy to be one. I speak English, French and German.

I live, eat and breathe Astronomy. I just bought an 8-inch Dobsonian Reflector, and let me tell you, it's amazing. I do hope to get at least a Master's degree in Astronomy, or at least Physics. I think I'm leaning toward Cosmology, but Radio Astronomy sounds great too.

|Hi! I've seen on your last message that you would like study astronomy to become astronomer. I have the same project for later except studies and diploms which were different in France.

Heyy. I love astronomy. I'm interested in black holes and supernovas and mostly things that are considered science fiction such as worm holes and time warps. I love to think of the fabric of time and other such things i was wondering if anyone knows some good schools i should look for. I don't own a telescope but i don't think that one would work for the type of "stargazing" i'm into. < 3 hoping to make the world different through discoveries!

|Hi,im Natalie and I LOVE learning about space! I also like Blackholes! i heard if u go in one you get hurt...Yikes!!! and im a stargazer too...I used to have a Telescope but it turns out,it was a really cheap one :( so i never really looked up close at a star but every night,I look into the beautiful star-filled sky. 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! I will never get tired of Astronony!!! It's nice that we have alot in common.

I have wanted to be an astronomer ever since I was 7 years old. It all started when me and my cousins went to NASA, there a real astronaut showed me a space ship. later when I was 9 I went to Kennedy's space center. There I went on a space simulator it was awesome!
One day I will be a famous astronomer. I wanted to be an astronomer because I am afreid of heights. Can any of you tell me more about space? Thanks!!

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.

|luv stars i have a telescope but only couple lens bulding one soon|
I don't know why just a few people get here.
I really want to be an astronomer. My preference is to find out if the universe becomes larger or not.
I am now involved in an astronomy club in my senior high school I love to join it because I can use telescopes.
hufffff,, I haven't had my own one...
Hopefully I have one soon.
By the way, why do you guys want to be an astronomer?
And I want to ask you guys a question, is the price of telescopes expensive, guys?
| 10843 - Reply from Parnia251 , 16 yrs (Iran) - 2011-08-10 |
|First of all~~~> I don't have any idea about the price of a telescope!=D But I wanna buy one.
I'm really fascinated in astronomy.Love to be an astronomer.I like to study habitable planets,cosmic holes,dark matter,galaxies & so on!!
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.

|To answer your question: yes. I have a good telescope but I do not have many lenses. A telescope is expensive but lenses even more. But good lenses assure good observations... So yes, make observations with his own equipment is very expensive. Sorry...|
I love astronomy ! This is a science that is evolving and can make new discoveries each time. But astronomy is primarily one of the finest science because it is the only one who can give so wonderful dreams when we see the beauty of space! My preference? The mystery of black holes ! And you ?...
J'adore l'astronomie ! Voilà une science qui ne cesse d'évoluer et permet de faire de nouvelles découvertes à chaque instant.
