I'm looking to buy a telescope for casual viewing of planets and galaxies. One I saw is an 8inch *1000mm focal length reflector type on a motorised equatorial mount with an 8*50 finder scope. Does this sound like something suitable for seeing a decent amount of lunar surface detail and the rings of Saturn?
