Refractor or Reflector?

Which one should you be going for? Well, there is a distinct difference between the two types and each type has its advantage. Reflecting telescopes use mirrors inside the tube; whereas, refractor telescopes use lenses and therefore are often bigger and heavier. Because of this, refractors have become popular as cheaper, lighter and more portable telescopes (great for beginners too). Generally, refractor telescopes tend to be better for observing planets and the moon; whereas, reflectors are better for deep-sky objects such as galaxies and nebulas.

The Buy Now Pay Later option comprises a 36 month loan following a six month deferral period.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
