Thank you gentlemen,,,, you both make a good point. I will not dispute my son’s decision to buy the Celestron. I need portability because I /we plan on travelling to locations on the other side of the mountains to areas where the skies are amazing and very dark. I live in Washington Sate in the US, And there are some really good observing sites.
I will admit to being skeptical due to the decisions I have made in the past. I didn’t want to admit that the telescope was NOT really good quality… I was being cheap and miserly lol. This time I plan on being more careful about quality. I am referring to the eyepieces I will purchase as accessories. My son plans on buying the Celestron and I must try and bury my past skepticism, as well as lack of knowledge and patience.
