Quote:Returning to sky watching after many years of just looking up and recently decided to purchase a new scope. I like the traditional refractor type and have been looking at the two scopes listed in the "subject" line. Are these good starter scopes, if so, is either better than the other? Or, are there other better choices? I know size counts but the budget is $300. Thanks for any advice!
