Get some good binoculars
15 Before you jump ahead and buy a telescope, remember that the sky comes in three layers. The first is everything you can see with the naked eye. The third is what you can see with the telescope. Don’t forget the second layer, which you can only really appreciate with a good pair of binoculars. Not only are they portable, they give you a stereo view of the heavens and a much wider field of view than a telescope can, and binoculars are the only way to look at some objects in the night sky.
