Moderately priced telescope

Thank you for your interest in A 12th magnitude star is very dim. I'm not sure any scope under $1000 will be able to help you. You'll need a very clear dark night, in a very dark location away from city lights, and at least an 8" high quality scope.

I would suggest contacting a local Astronomy club. They might be able to help you find what you'll need.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

For Valentine's Day I bought my wife a star. It is in the Ursa Major. Magnitude is 12.6. We live in Texas and were wondering what telescope we could use to see it. She is rather excited about seeing it! Anything that will be good to us with a moderate price tag would be great. Thanks in advance for any information.
