Beginners may prefer a refractor telescope. These are ideal as they are easy to assemble and they offer up a variety of uses and they’re lightweight. If you’re planning to look at the night sky or during the daytime hours, these are an ideal choice. Reflector telescopes are heavier and larger and ideal for finer detail and night viewing, especially if you’re going to remain in one location. Larger apertures offer you a better view of the night skies.
