    Of course the best option is this. A finderscope and a Telrad is all you need.

    @shittyfuck Yes that is alright. Most newtonian telescopes have the view upside down unless you are using an erecting eyepiece. It may even help you in moving the telescope.

    Hai Sturgeon, I want to construct my first telescope. How would i use achromat of 55 mm diameter, -4000 mm FL (coated). What type of eyepiece will be more better for a astronomical telescope. Give your precious guidance and suggestions. I planed to be within $50.
