Yes indeed...size does matter. It depends on how much you are going to spend. If you want to start at a point where you want to see more than planets, try a 8" Dobsonian. They can be had for less than $500. Meade's telescopes have gone down in price and you could pick up a 10" Dobs for less than $500. Large refractors cost a lot of money. Of course if you save your money you could buy a larger scope with more goodies. Look around and ask questions meanwhile. There are tons of options that you should understand first. Clear Skies!!
