Reading an article on beginners in amateur astronomy, I came to understand that my search for telescopes is not at the right time. Telescope will not allow you or put you on the night viewing passion, but rather not knowing its efficient use may also lead its place to the closet.
Usually it is advised for any requiring hobby to start on by buying this or buying that. I was rather astonished to the fact that most experienced amateur astronomers usual first time advice is to get familiar with the night sky, with the constellations and with the stars before buying anything. (As if they know, that once you get in this field then your aperture fever or drooling on the latest equipment never dies).
Therefore, I took the advice to buy a binocular first rather than buying the telescope. And in fact the next day, I went to buy my first binoculars. A 10 x 50. Explanation to what is this 10 x 50 is given in the following youtubes. I like this guy’s simple explanations.
But my astonishment found no bounds when you come to know that binoculars are not only this size but can they be larger or bigger.
As to be said, the nerd notion was a bit less understood, so this post is an upgrade of nerdiness to be found in the amateur astronomy world. Browsing through the internet you find a lot but, which marks your interest may be only a selected few.
I regret the fact that there are others who call these people nerds or fools but I would rather call them enthusiasts.
You don’t even understand or need to understand the love they have for the night.
So, what do you say now, A good pair of Binoculars or Binoscope?

Rocket Roberts is such a Nerd
How can someone be such a nerd to start from a telescope
to see the night sky as a hobby and then to build a whole observatory in his backyard. I felt that this is something weird. “All Americans are weirdos”. In our part of the world people don’t become so much weird. But….. I was to be proved WRONG!!!
Actually following the beginners telescope advice I made up my mind that I should obviously have an Orion SkyQuest XT8 Classic Dobsonian Telescope But later (in the later months of research in the amateur astronomy world) in my quest to buy my best first telescope led me to find weirder people in the astronomy field who are not mad about telescopes but OBSESSED about TELESCOPES.
And here I bumped up on to OBSESSION Telescopes.
But now I have made up my mind to get my first telescope. Though it would be much a hassle as I have to import it. But it would be either the Orion XT8 Classic Dobsonian Telescope,
And then one day or the other to have one Obsession Telescope for Life time use. Hope this child wish realises.
