I am new to this hobby although i have been stargazing since i was a kid.
I have the opportunity to purchase a new bausch&lomb 4.5" reflective scope with three plossol eyepieces and a 2x barlow with eq2 tripod with clock adapter the focal length is 900 mm.
My question is what would be a resonable price for such a scope the advertised price is 349.99 canadian. i am not sure what to buy. I plan on using this scope for planetary as well as deep space observing. would this size and type suit my needs for now. I also plan on leting my 7 & 5 year old use it so I dont really want to get anything to expensive to start. I have the chance to purchase a meade lx10 with two eyepieces and tripod for 900 can. any advice would be muchly appreciated.
