I posted earlier and never got a reply. I know nothing about telescopes and I asked what a good one would be for my wife. ursa major, in Texas. Thanks

Thank you for your interest in A 12th magnitude star is very dim. I'm not sure any scope under $1000 will be able to help you. You'll need a very clear dark night, in a very dark location away from city lights, and at least an 8" high quality scope.

I would suggest contacting a local Astronomy club. They might be able to help you find what you'll need.

I hope this helps. Good luck.
Best Regards,
