In this episode of Looking Up, hosts Dean Regas and Anna Hehman get ready for holiday gift giving by talking about the different types of telescopes out there for new and veteran astronomers, Dean talks about his first telescope, then they welcome Sean Walker, Equipment Editor from Sky & Telescope magazine for hints on the best gear available.

Plus, in time for Dean's birthday, they welcome two very special guests!
