Thinking about buying a telescope, upgrading the one you have, or maybe just understanding telescopes better? SoVerA member Pat Porch will discuss the different types of common telescopes, how they work, the pros and cons of each type, commercial buying vs. building your own, and new vs. used. These suggestions could help you decide on your next telescope purchase.
