    Wasn't the best.

    I am interested in astronomy recently and now I thought about buying a telescope. As more experienced in this matter, can you tell me how to choose the right telescope for a beginner? The telescope is preferably not difficult to operate, because my son is also interested in studying the starry sky. It is important for me that it is also convenient for him to work with the telescope.

    Jupiter/Saturn conjunction
    If it was this time last year, we'd probably would have missed it due to smoke!

    Just found this live stream on Youtube.
