Bushnell 6756x5 or Meade ETX-70AT
The Meade ETX70-AT is motorized and computerized and a good choice in a double duty telescope for day and night use. The computer program and optics in the Meade are first rate and are well worth the money. Quality-wise, this telescope is well ahead of the Bushnell 675x5.
The Bushnell, though, is a considerably larger telescope and will show you more objects. Note that it is a strictly manual telescope - no motorization or computer. Also, it will be of limited use as a daytime telescope.
For the family, go with the Meade.
