Best beginning Astromomy telescope between $400-$500

Postby nevis1 on Wed Sep 12, 2007 1:04 am

We're moving into an area where we can actually use a telescope and are looking for suggestions please. We're both telescope rookies but want to spend enough to 'grow into'. We like the idea of the computerized models but are stumped from that point on. Reflector, refractor etc... very confusing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

Buy the biggest scope you can afford that has the features that you want. Since that is a computer, go with a refelctor like the Celestron Nexstar 130SLT. See our website info section for more articles on how to choose a telescope. Thanks
