Bob,

Here is a link to some reviews I have used to base my decision on: http://www.excelsis.com/vote/astro/telescopes/OrionS14/

I'll gladly post my own review, keeping in mind it will be from a complete amateur who this evening, for the first time in my life, identified Saturn and Jupiter using a simple star chart and some assistance from my girlfriend. I used a small monocular (8x21) to get a closer look...but, alas, they are small dots in the sky with this crude tool. I'm so looking forward to getting a real telescope to assist my stargazing.

Forrest
