Celestron C65 spotting scope
I think you would be disappointed - optics are marginal,at best, up through 40 and useless at 90x and the C65 does not have the ability to use standard telescope eyepieces like the other C series scopes. That's about what you should expect, though, from the price. Much better choice would be the C90. It's no ETX-125, but it is much closer than the C65
The best scope of the mak design at the price point of the Celestrons previously mentioned is the discontinued LOMO Mak 60 (I had the presence of mind to purchase one from Optics Planet a few years ago).

Yes, I miss those LOMOs, too. The LOMO Astele 70 would have been even better, but only option is now to go hunting for used.
