I WOULD LIKE INFORMATION ON A GOOD TELESCOPE IN THE $500.00 TO $600.00 RANGE FOR MY HUSBAND FOR STAR-WATCHING IN THE COLORADO ROCKIES. ANY ADVISE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
THANK YOU, ROBEN

Dear Roben,
Thank you for your interest in www.OpticsPlanet.com. You have an excellent starting point to get yourselves a good telescope. You are also lucky enough to be in a very good viewing area. I couldn't find anything quite in that range, but we do carry the following that I would recommend:
http://opticsplanet.com/meade-etx90ec.html, Meade ETX 90, $645,
http://opticsplanet.com/meade-ds2000.html, Meade DS-2114 ATS, $419.99,
http://opticsplanet.com/clstrn-c6-n.html, Celestron C6-N, $449,
http://opticsplanet.com/ci-nextstar-130gt.html, $449.99.

All of the above come with clear instructions, and will last many years as your interest grows. I hope this has been helpful. Good luck.
Best Regards,
Stan Mack
