is an IT
guy, but he's also an amateur astronomer who takes telescope selection and scope building extra-seriously. We ran a video interview with him
yesterday. Today that interview continues, with more emphasis on telescope selection and purchasing. He mentions Orion
, a telescope vendor he seems to respect, along with other sources for both new and used equipment. Which should you buy (or build): A reflector or a refractor telescope? Bruce talks about how you should make your selection based on what you want to view, your skill level, and how much time and/or money you have available.
