Which is the better scope. x-mas gift?
I am looking to purchase one of the following for someone who has had experience using a telescope before. The price range of these telescopes is what I am willing to spend.
These are the ones I have done research on.
Bushnell 675x5" Reflector Telescope
Celestron Firstscope 76EQ
Please advise me as to which is the better quality. Thank you.
The Meade and the Bushnell are both larger telescopes, so an experienced user would appreciate the extra size. For only slightly more, I would suggest the Meade 114EQ-A, http://www.opticsplanet.com/meade-114-e ... 04055.html, or the Tasco Galaxee 1000x114, http://www.opticsplanet.com/rasco-1000x ... axsee.html, as both have sturdier mounts.
