Hello all, First of all thanks for taking the time to look at my post, and thanks ahead of time to those willing to answer my question. I've always loved Astronomy and have done quite a bit of self-study over the years. I have a pair of binoculars but want to get a telescope. I'll start by saying what I'm looking for, and provide a list of scopes I've found may meet my requirements, so the idea is for you experts out there to tell me which suits my needs best. If you have other suggestions they are, of course, welcome. I live in a city, but near the outskirts so I can see most of the constellations and even some dimmer objects with the naked eye. So, I would highly value a scope that has a decent aperture to gather more light and help me see more DSOs. I would like one that is just as good at seeing DSOs as planets/the moon, so from what I've read I think I need something between f/6 - f/10, but am not completely set on that spec. I would also like one that's not too difficult to transport (for when I head out into the country) and also not too large as I live in a small-ish apartment. As I said I am a first-time telescope user but also have a decent knowledge of Astronomy, so keep that in mind. I am not particulary set on any type of telescope, either (refractor, reflector, etc...). Also important, I would like to spend less than 500 dollars and ideally around 300-400 or less. So I leave you three telescopes I've found so far that may work for me, and will anxiously await your responses.
