I am considering buying a telescope for stargrazing. What parameters/ specs/ materials should I keep in mind while deciding about the purchase.
So far, I've considered a telescope featuring the following :
D=75/f=750mm Astronomical Telescope 30x to 188x
Optical design: Newtonian Optical system
Primary Mirror: Diameter 75mm / Focal length 750mm (180x Power)
Secondary Diagonal: Matched Optical Flat
Astro eyepieces 1.25"OD:1) 25mm efl,2) 12mm efl Ramsdens
Variable Barlow 1.25" OD:(1.5x = 2x=2.5x=3x)
Finder: Gunsight for quick alignment
Eyepieces mount: Focuser 1.25"

Being an astronomy enthusiast, is this telescope good for casual usage ?
