Out of the three I would agree with KWB the Orion 70mm if you are dead set against a dob. If your not dead set against a dob checkout Orion's clearance center they have an XT 4.5 inch dob for less than $200.00. Anyway good luck with your purchase.

Ditto. At any rate, the OP should avoid the 114mm Jones-Bird catadioptric Newtonian.
