Two articles for beginning astronomers are available on site


Any amateur astronomer sooner or later realizes that accessories from the standard kit of their telescope are no longer enough or they need specific accessories for particular observations. The most common accessories additionally required by telescope owners are telescope eyepieces and an astronomical filter. It’s very important for astronomers to know the basic principles of choosing such accessories; that’s why this month we have published two articles that will help beginning astronomers understand what accessories they need and how to select them.

The first article is prepared by Levenhuk especially for those who are planning to acquire some additional eyepieces for their telescopes but, due to lack of experience, cannot decide which eyepieces to choose. After reading this short but informative guide you’ll no longer have that problem. You will learn about different eyepiece optical designs, their strong and weak points, technical characteristics and how many of them you should have in your accessory set. Make sure to read the full guide in order to avoid useless buys.

There are also a lot of types of astronomical filters available on the market. You can find dozens of color filters, solar filters, lunar filters, broadband and narrowband filters, special nebula and comet filters. It might be a little difficult for a beginner to understand their purpose and the difference between them. The newly published article, ‘Types of optical filters for telescopes’, includes the essential information required for easy navigation in astronomical filters and understanding which filter is needed in any given situation. The article is clear and easy-to-understand. It is also short, so reading it won’t take a lot of time, but will provide you with valuable information.

You can always find more useful articles, materials and reviews in the ‘Good to Know section’ of our website.
