There is a choice of different optical instruments
If we start today on the road to observing the heavens, then two questions arise: “What do I want to see? “ and “How detailed will I see it?”. There are different possibilities for observing the stars. One can undertake the observation with the naked eye and for example explore constellations or shooting stars, or pick up a pair of binoculars and explore the constellations and the planets. To see the objects more closely and to explore planets, comets and galaxies, you need a proper, large telescope. If however you wish to observe the land as well as the starlit sky you can still reach for your binoculars or Spotting scope. Lens telescopes are also suitable with special accessories for land observation.
