From what I've read the bigger the appature the better. I did buy a cheap scope a while back but found having to try and track objects was a pain (I'm not that patient ) so I think I'd prefer one with a computer. I'd like to be able to see the planets and nebulars and have a budget of about $1000.
I've been looking at the Celetron NexStar 6 SE Telescope, what are your throughts on this one? Is there much difference between that one and the 5" version?
Many thanks in advance

You're on the right track with a GOTO and motorized tracking. The Celestron SE is a great choice for those feature. Go for the 6" if you can swing it. Even 1 inch of aperture is significant, here.
