I am completely noob to space science. Recently, I visited to my cousins and found amazing experience of observing Moon with telescope. The one that they uses is "Monocular Outdoor High Definition Terrestrial Astronomical Telescope". I want to know how should I start with space exploration and which type of telescope is suitable for this kind of adventure?

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to StackExchange! This question is better suited for Astronomy.SE as it has nothing to do with space exploration. Please ask your question there, but I'm afraid even then it's out of scope for the site as it's too broad and opinion-based. Please see the tour of Astronomy.SE to see what kind of questions this site is suitable for (important point: this is not a forum, lengthy discussions are not the goal of StackExchange sites). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ BTW, for armchair space-explorer, I'd recommend Orbiter - more realistic but also more limited spacecraft simulator, and Kerbal Space Program - which replaces some most harsh aspects of spaceflight with more 'friendly' counterparts, but provides much more flexibility, especially in spacecraft design. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @SF. simulators and games do not explore space. They are video games. Conflagration of looking at the real universe in the night sky with a telescope with sitting indoors playing video games is cynical at best. $\endgroup$
