    I dunno what to believe these day... Some birders say using Fieldscopes cannot be considered for serious usage... then again, the amount you'll spend is MORE serious than an amature birder... what gives?! Well, just google around for fieldscope images, and see whether they deliver serious images then...

    get a proper telescope for moon shot. it is much cheaper than buying a camera lens for such shots

    Get a proper telescope. It is much cheaper compared to camera lens with the same focal length.

    Interesting!... And where does one search for such items? The only one I can think of is at Singapore Science Center (never been inside the store, btw), just know that its located at the Omni-theater.

    There is a local Singapore Astronomy forum

    www.singastro.org

    For telescope showroom only the science center has it. Great place to check it out and ask questions

    For local 'online shopping'

    www.astrobargains.com

    *Im not affiliate with any of the mentioned shops. I used to be an astrophotographer.
