Hello everyone! ill jump right into it, i live in CO in the high rockies just over 11,000 feet elevation, some nights the moon is almost as bright as the sun with all of the white snow on the ground but (hopefuly) the snow will be melting soon revealing an insurmountable amount of stars in the night sky. Im looking for a scope that would be able to view planets in detail and deep star clusters, i have about $600 in credits to best buy so celestron is pretty much my only option. should i buy something in the 400 dollar range and buy upgraded accessories with the remainder? or just go all out on the scope. thanks in advance!
**Edit: I should mention that I go on long camping trips across the CO, Utah, Arizona, etc. so portability will definitely be a key factor in my decision making.
