Howdy all!!
Well I am an amature astronomer and I am looking for a good telescope. How do I select a good telescope to view all the stars in the night sky, I would additionally want to make it interesting for me, so I would like to see the faint stars too!!
Help me choose please..

Hi Gautham,
It all depends on how much you're willing to spend
Check out Amazon.com's Telescope Buying Guide, there's some good information there.
This company has a lot of info and a good choice of instruments on sale: Oceanside Photo and Telescope.
And I presume you've been here

I personally would prefer a pair of powerful binoculars - I own a Minolta Zoom 7-15x35, but I would recommend a Minolta Zoom 8-20x50. Ofcourse, not necessarily Minolta. There are better brands, if you can afford it
