new to the site and checking about telescopes. I am a newbie so any advice will be most welcome.

cheers from Phuket,

Good to see there are some people doing astronomy.

I have a 10" dob and regular I go out on a dark spot near Khao Jai. There are sometimes starparties organized by Darasart.com

I am into amateur astronomy and a couple of years ago was seriously considering buying a Refractor scope.

But I later decided that it wouldn't be a good idea because where I live in Chiang Mai, for most of the time the sky is hazy with smoke pollution and light pollution.

For those who are thinking about purchasing an expensive telescope or refractor scope, should take into consideration the viewing quality of the sky in your area.
