Advice on astronomical equipment

A lot depends on how you are going to use your equipment, and that often changes as you gain confidence. There are also advantages and disadvantages to having more or less portable equipment.

Please do not hesitate to ask for advice on the purchase or use of astronomical equipment. Most members are very willing to offer their views, but please bear in mind that we all have our interests and prejudices so ask around before taking advice too literally.
