Thank you for supporting this wiki project
In 2009, International Astronomical Union (IAU) and UNESCO has made a huge effort to advocate the Astronomy all around the world.

The aim was to remind people how large, beauty and awe is our Universe and also to invite them to enjoy and to think about Cosmos.

An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been conducting a little research on this. And he in fact bought me dinner due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this topic here on your internet site.

Since you have already been loonkig around and probably know this my suggestion is something like a 7 35 as a minimum. Anything with a magnification higher than 10 will shake too much and will require a tripod mounting which you may still want to do later on. Go for as large a lens as you can afford. I personally use a Nikon Sporting II which is 10 50. I wanted the larger diameter and a higher magnification and unfortunately it doesn't have a tripod mount, but I bought this 15 years ago when I didn't know any better so have kept with it. Maybe someday I will design a tripod mount for it.Try the Green Witch at Cambridge they have a selection, and they can help you out. Even the bird-watching ones are fine. Some of them come with tripod mountings.
