Still a newbie, but I am slowly formulating a new "rule of thumb" for myself where budgeting is concerned: if you want to buy a new telescope, you should budget for triple the price:

1/3 for the telescope, 1/3 (+) for the mount, 1/3 (-) for accessories you didn't realize you would absolutely need at the time.

 

Oh, and Amazon reviews are absolutely useless for this hobby!
