This is a talk to introduce to the public the types of telescopes used in Amateur Astronomy in Malaysia. We brought and showed to the audience 3 types of telescopes - refractor, reflector & SCT on different mounts - Goto & non Goto. We covered what are the main differences between these different designs and advise them of what they should look out for if they are interested in this field. Also set the expectation of they can see thru the scopes visually vs what is possible via Astrophotography. At the end of the talk, the audience had a chance to see these scope upclose and converse with the scope owners.
