Astronomy Product Reviews
by Michelle Stone

My goal here is to share my experiences and personal preferences with others. The task of choosing equipment is a difficult one. It is made worse by the fact that most of the quality equipment is not available through retail outlets. Please let me know what you think or if you have something to add... Michelle
