Whether you have a house on the Welsh hills or you live in the city centre of Liverpool overlooking the Albert Dock at night, there are locations in Britain that can easily take your breath away, and they can provide the perfect backdrop for star gazing or just taking in your surroundings.
Binoculars are a great way to receive a clearer image of your surrounding and allow you to focus on various aspects of the location. However, if you really want to see details from your location then it may be wise to invest in a telescope as this optical equipment allows you to zoom in on your long distance view, whether you’re looking at the stars or the city streets.
It is recommended that if you purchase binoculars and intend to use them regularly then you should invest a tripod, because if you use it continually then your arms may become achy.
Telescopes, when combined with a tripod, are probably the best way to enjoy long distance views, so if you are lucky enough to live in a similar location, with sweeping views from your front window, why not think about telescopes as a way to enjoy them even more?
Sherwoods Photographic has a fantastic range of telescopes and other optical equipment. If you want to look a bit further than the hills in the distance, they also stock Astronomical Telescopes.
