Land and Astronomy Telescopes for viewing Terrestrial and Celestial: All rounders
Here, at Coast Photo – we have Land & Astronomy Telescopes to suit everyone, and every budget. Most of our telescopes will have a low magnification eyepiece to allow you to search for an object maybe an animal or a boat on the ocean, once you have found the object you then have a second eyepiece to increase the magnification to get closer and see more detail if you would like to.
For Astronomy most of these dual purpose telescopes will give you great views of the Moon and the major Planets.
Land & Astronomy Telescopes
Buying telescopes can feel like a big step, especially if you’re not sure what all those terms mean. So, to help you understand what to look for in a quality telescope, read below for all of the details.
We carry a small range (4-6 models) here at Coast Photo, it is always best to get in touch and we can let you know if the model you are keen on is in stock! And if not, – we can arrange this pretty quickly provided the suppliers have stock available.
Feel free to reach out and we will give you a hand. 🙂
We live in a rather crazy and fast paced world. And it can be difficult to take some time to unwind and do something contemplative, It just goes almost without saying that the universe is a mysterious and remarkable place. But there is much more to it, there is also a feeling that comes along with viewing – it is a feeling of awe and wonder.
There is something very significant about seeing the universe.
You cannot help but think about the nature and mystery of life when looking up at the night sky. There is something about astronomy that evokes a philosophical train of thought.
You may have felt this before when looking up at the stars. 🙂
Magnification is important for land viewing, because of atmospherics looking across land you are limited to around 60x magnification to give you the best image, most of our telescopes will have a low magnification eyepiece to allow you to search for an object maybe an animal or a boat on the ocean, once you have found the object, you then have a second eyepiece to increase the magnification to get closer and see more detail.
For Astronomy most of these dual purpose telescopes will give you great views of the Moon and the major Planets, also the larger aperture telescopes are very good for Nebula’s and Star clusters.
