Hi Mike

Lots of articles I've written on our website to help, but for that money you could get a 5 " reflector, such as the Celestron 130 EQ or 90mm refractor, such as the Celestron Astromaster 90EQ and still have enough left for some telescope accessories.

For articles, try
How to Choose the Right Telescope
Telescope First Questions

These will discuss the pros and cons of each type as well as important features. Let me know if you have more questions.

I am new to this and I have 400 to play witb. I want to look at planets and stars the moon and go from there . I look online and there so many different kinds. I live in new England and its pretty dark where I live and I would bring this camping with me as well. So any input would be very helpful .

Thanks
Mike
