: I'm about to enter the world of amature astronomy and : buy a new telescope. I'll probably start out in the : low end of things. I've been looking at Meade's 8" : LX10. I'm a little confused after looking at all of : the different telescope specs. What is focal ratio? : Does a larger focal ratio mean better?

: Thanks
