 +====== Guide To Telescopes and Microsopes ======
 +One of Aristotle subjects was curiosity and he taught it by unlocking it in the mind of the pupil, a locked attribute of the self, an opening of the mind, parts of our minds are closed but for a child with the right mind he will seek a telescope and a microscope. Here is a buying guide.
 +From disorientation to the begninning of orientation in Ancient Egypt man has come to orientate himself according to the sun, the moon and the stars from it he can keep time, keep seasons and find his place in the order of things. Galileo Galilei took it vastly further with the use of a telescope and for any new astronomer noticing the heavens for the first time, their is much to do and he ultimately requires a telescope.
 +This is an exciting time to become an astronomer. Never have novice stargazers been presented with such a vast array of telescopes and accessories to pursue their hobby.
 +====== Telescopes ======
 +One can see stars in the night sky and the sun and the moon, the motions of the sun, the arcs of the moons, the seasons, a year. One can learn and identify the different constellations and use simple binoclers and a simple telescope to orientate himself. Binoculars are easy and great to get started, hundreds of deep-sky objects are big and bright enough to show well through apertures of two inches or so, at low magnifications. Thus, medium sized binoculars - 7x50 or 10x50 ('​7x50'​ means '7 power, 50-mm aperture'​),​ make inexpensive,​ highly portable, easily operated beginner instruments. To use them well, you must be willing to learn the sky enough to find things with a hand-held instrument.
 +Eventaully with much work done a telescope is in order. Buying a telescope requires knowledge of their function, using a telescope require knowledge of the heavens. They cost as low as $30 and as high as $7,000.
 +Aperture size, portability and sturdy construction.
