[quote] I am in the market for a beginners telescope. I prefer a reflector style over anything else. I found a few on different sites and they all fit my budget, but I dont know if there is a difference between them. Can you help me out ?

Here are my findings.......

Meade 114 EQ - AST short or long tube
Celestron Firstscope 76EQ
Celestron Powerseeker 114EQ
Bushnell 675 x 4.5 Deep Space
Konus 500mm with 6v R.A. motor drive
Konus 114 - 114mm 4.5 reflector
