With many stargazers disappointed at not being able to catch a good glimpse of the 'blood moon' caused by the 2014 total lunar eclipse, it may be a good idea to invest in some lunar eclipse telescopes to help you see this jaw-dropping sight the next time it comes around.

It just so happens that there will be three more total lunar eclipses in the next 18 months, so there's still plenty of time to think about how to get your hands on a telescope for the next occurrence.

Telescopes come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from the humongous telescopes used by space agencies and large astronomy laboratories to tiny pocket-sized telescopic attachments that can be added to your smartphone camera. Whatever your budget or means, there is a lunar eclipse telescope out there that will help you gaze with wonder at this amazing astronomical phenomenon.
