jima21: I have an 8yr old boy, who is into astronomy, I would like to be involved in this with him, but I am also new to this and would like more information or how to start any input, ideas, guidance is much appreciated. Thank you. Apr 1, 2014 14:36:04 GMT -6
shareef777: Hi all,[br][br]So I used to have a telescope years ago but had to sell it due to my growing family and financial needs. I've since settled down and wanted to get back into the hobby and get my kids into it as well. What's a good starting place? Apr 9, 2014 9:14:02 GMT -6
Chicago Astronomer Joe: 777....A Dobsonian telescope is your best value for a starter scope. Get one with at least a 6 inch aperture. A good on-line search will display many manufactures of good scopes. Apr 13, 2014 3:58:14 GMT -6
Chicago Astronomer Joe: Jima....8 years old is a great age to start exploring the cosmos and economically. It would be best to start a thread on your question, where we can share pics and expand on the interest. Apr 13, 2014 4:04:03 GMT -6
