My teenage son has taken a first interest in astronomy, but I must confess I know nothing about telescopes and star watching. After doing some background reading and research on the internet I was more confused than before. Dave was extremely helpful and walked me through the pros and cons to help identify which telescope would work best for us. Would highly recommend.
