Telescopes are a fantastic way to observe the night sky. And in many ways, there is no older hobby for mankind. Fascination with the stars reaches back hundreds, even thousands, of years but never before has mankind ever been so equipped to see what space has to offer. For many though, telescopes aren’t something to simply hide in the closet until they are ready to be used. They are an exquisite piece of furniture to be shown off in the home, to be made into the centrepiece to a room, as both hobby equipment and a unique conversation point.
If you delight in showing off your telescope and are looking to invest in another for your home, consider the glory of a brass telescope in your possession. It’s very presence gives the impression of traditional, fine craftsmanship that is as much a magnificent sight as what you will be using it to view. Options such as a mahogany tripod, copper arc mount and erecting prism give it a luxurious and impressive quality that many newer models of telescopes lack. And considering the detail and regal features of this astronomical telescope, it won’t come at astronomical prices.
To make this astronomical telescope even more attractive is the fact that it can be used for terrestrial viewing, as well as observations of space. You will want to spend as much time gazing at this fantastic telescope as you will want to look into space. You will be the envy of enthusiasts.
