Hey all.My wife and I are getting interested in astrology and have been looking for a telescope.We want something that we can use for awhile instead of a beginner scope that will be replaced.We have been looking at the specs on the Celestron Nexstar 114GT.Since this is our first telescope we dont want to go outrageous on the price but we are looking in the price range of $4-600.Going by the description of the 114GT it seems to be a good scope but not knowing anything about them we are looking for advice from people who know what they are talking about.Any responses on the scope we are looking at or suggestions on other scopes will be appreciated.We arent really interested in the photography part of astronomy (yet) so we want something that we can look at pretty much anything that we want,i.e. planets,stars and such.Thanks for all the info.

Mark and Kristi
