The biggest problem will be shooting through glass window, that could ruin everything.

Yep. One of my worries is I will spend all kinds of money and still have photos I am not satisfied with. An impeccably clean window is a must. I was kind of hoping I would find someone like me here I have learned all kinds of tricks for shooting through windows due to necessity, so the only thing for me to do is try it out and see if it's worth it

An impeccably clean window may not do the job. If the glass is not extremely planar and free of imperfections, it will affect your image in tele settings. Best to open it, if you can. Of course the window is not multicoated, so you will also get reflections (loss of contrast etc.), and if it's a double glass, you will have even more possibilities for reflections.

Have a look at this focal length simulator:


Roughly, doubling the focal length will double the (zoom in by a factor of 2) the image.

This helps as well. Thank you for the link
