Hello folks,
I'm very new into viewing celestial objects with a telescope and was wondering what optics would be the best for planet and lunar viewing with a price cap of $100 or so??
Are ortho's really the best and which company makes a quality optic?
Are Plossel's good enough, or stick with ortho's?
I have not been able to find a comany which advertises having a set of ortho's under their name so if someone could refer a quality company it would be very helpful.

Thank you in advance,
Clear skies,
