    Another vote for 8" dob. Price wise you just can't go wrong!

    I bought this $340.00 Orion 6" tabletop dobsonian scope for my brother's first scope.he loves it. Very simple. great views. For $500 you can get the intelliscope version which tells you what direction to point your scope when looking for celestial targets. The best part is this scope goes on clearance (scrathecor minorly blemished) all the gime at telescope.com
