Best Telescope under $80?

Postby SingingSky on Tue Dec 09, 2008 9:26 am

I'd like to purchase a telescope for my daughter for Christmas. My preferable price range would be between $50 and $70, but I can go up to $80 if need be.

I'm looking for a good quality scope that will give her a clear image of the moon and planets and perhaps beyond.

I know nothing about telescopes, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi

Best buy interms of size and quality under $100 is easily the Bushnell 3" reflector. Everything else at this price is both smaller and made with a lot of plastic parts.
