Need help buying my first scope.
It looks good and the price is in the range that i can afford. But when i talk to people they say for that price range i should just get a good pair of binoculars. That scope looks better then a set of binoculars to me, but again, im so new it just all seems like greek at this point.
So, this is what im doing and what i need. I am taking a intro to astronomy and physics class in a few months. I want something that can give me a real look at the sky. I dont have a lot of cash to spend on this at the moment, so $150 is probably the max i can spend. Actually i might be able to get it up to 300 or 400 if i ask for some help.. maybe... but 150-200 would be nice. But if there is a real reason to go higher, i would love to know.
So please, if anyone can help guide me i would be so grateful. I so confused :-/
