I`ll agree with Robert on this one. There are chances that you could find a scope that is used for the $300 range if you are at the right place at the right time. But, being this is the ATM forum have you considered making your own scope? A 6"(150mm) or 8"(206mm) reflector would be an ideal first scope. It`s cheap and you can make it to your own specifications. Some to think upon. Good Luck!
