Are you in a location that occasionally gets really nice dark skies and seeing? For instance, can you ever see the Milky Way very prominently with the naked eye, and can you see M31 naked-eye? If not, your observing site is not going to be suitable for viewing other galaxies, and no amount of money will improve that significantly. Even Warren Buffet could not aford to build a decent observatory in suburban areas of Florida. You may want to concentrate on planetary observing if this is your circumstance.

Turbo is a real pro. I unwaveringly endorse his advice on equipment decisions.
