5.0 out of 5 stars Aspiring astronomers please note
I've just finished reading this wonderful, comprehensive review of the world of refracting telescopes at the present time. As a telescope owner it has given me ideas on how to upgrade my existing instrument to get much more out of it. It's a pity that a paperback book like this is so expensive, but I don't suppose there are economies of scale to be made.

3.0 out of 5 stars I need to grow into it.
This is an excellent book.

I bought it to help me make my first choice of a refractor telescope, and as a complete novice I found it good but a litle overwhelming - I never realised it was such a complex subject!

If you already have some knowledge of refractor telescopes and understand all of the technical terminology then I am sure this book will be...

Neil English has produced an informative and very useful guide to the way that refractors are designed, and how best to make use of the different types. His descriptions are sufficiently technical to facilitate understanding, but not so technical as to overwhelm the lay reader. An excellent read!

This is an excellent book.

I bought it to help me make my first choice of a refractor telescope, and as a complete novice I found it good but a litle overwhelming - I never realised it was such a complex subject!

If you already have some knowledge of refractor telescopes and understand all of the technical terminology then I am sure this book will be a "breeze" for you to read and enjoy.

For me as an absolute beginner to astronomy and telescopes it is a very helpful reference that I will keep on my shelf and refer to it for many years to come, and as I "grow into it" and understand more it will become an ever more usefull point of reference.
