I've narrowed down my preference to two telescopes... and most probably the Four inch Dobsonian listed below...this thing is HOT. For it's size it kicks hiney! If you want quality for the money, this is it!
Also this refractor is great for the money...would seriously consider it...A great value...

Hi Ron... interesting stuff.

I have to tell you, though, I can't see paying two or three times more than the Orion for one of those scopes, especially when they're only 4-inchers. I'm sure they're better quality, but I don't know about better value.

I've subscribed to the astrophotography mailing list, and I'll share some of their insights regarding telescope selection in a later post.

Thanks for all the good info...
