At Light Outdoors, we have a lot of hobbies most of which take place in the good old outdoors, some in the daylight, some at night. One thing I enjoy, weather permitting, is to take the telescopes out and look at the wonders of the universe or at least the ones that we can see from planet Earth.

I recently purchased a couple of Orion telescopes from  Telescope.Com. Now I will be the first to admit I had no idea what I wanted other than just wanting a telescope. The folks at Telescope.Com talked to me and told me what would probably work best and what would probably not work well at all. They didn’t try to upsell me on better models, in fact for the conditions that I have they told me several of the telescopes I was looking at were just a waste of money because I would not be able to use it to it’s maximum benefit. 

I know they are in it to make money but they seemed to me that they were more interested in being honest and helping the customer first. Something I appreciate.
The links below will take you to the Telescope.Com website so that you can see for yourself.
