i would say try to go for the 70mm scope (9801) from orion as kip has said 60mm is limited at lest with the 70mm you get a little more... or theres also the spaceprobe 3" reflector (9835 & 9039)or if your willing to spend the money for $230 theres the shortube 4.5" reflector (9083).. as orion says theres a barlow built into the focuser of this scope... a reason why i would say take a look at the Celstron firstscope 114 (#31048 or #31050)... they seem decent the basic model runs at 200 dollars or something 30 dollars less then orion`s scope which is a pluss but i dont know how well it compairs to orion`s shortube 4.5"
