    This lineup is without a doubt a great seller for them and has been for sometime now. A nice package Celestron has put together with those beautiful orange tubes!

    Thank you all for all the great replies!
    I knew it would get more difficult to decide before I find it, but
    I am sure I will get the right one with all your input.
    I am watching all the replies as I shop.
    My budget is under 200. The Meade looks interesting. I like the Goto part of it and that it is a 90mm refractor, but I am worried the deep objects will be too small.

    I am at Frys and they do have the Galileo. F-1202md. It is a demo and says 136 USD here. It has some kind of motor but looks like ac power.
    Is this thing worth getting and spend some more on good lenses, or should I go for one of the other suggestions?
    Thanks again.

    Well I never heard of the Galileo F 1202 and I was not exactly impressed with what I saw.

    BUT I went on to Frys web site and they list it for 99 BUCKS store pick up...

    for 100 bucks its kind of hard to go wrong...woth just about any scope...
