What to buy, so confused..
I am wanting something that she can grow with, get good views of the plants etc.
my price range to start is 200 or under, she is only 6 but this will be for us to learn together and use together.
Yes, images are upside down in any reflector, but this is not an issue for astronomy, at all. It is only an issue if you want to use your telescope for some daytime work as well. In that case, a refractor with a diagonal or prism is a better choice.
If you want to stay with a reflector and I do recommend a reflector as a good choice for a beginner, you might also want to look at the even larger Bushnell Ares Dob. It is a very easy to use design and that bit of extra size is worthwhile, as telescope size is the primary factor in telescope performance. Really is a best buy in a beginner telescope.
