The ETX will get you a slightly more portable scope, but the Nexstar will have better optics and will also be much easier to focus.

My daughter and I are considering the purchase of a new telescope. We are beginners and have narrowed our selection to the following: Meade ETX-60 or Celestron Nexstar 60gt

Both fit within our budget and appear to have user-friendly automated features. Which would you recommend and why?
