I happened to find this site looking for a telescope. I am a newbie to telescopes. I had a cheap department store telescope about 30 years ago. I am looking for a telescope I can connect to a PC and displays on the screen for the purpose of making it easier for me and my 6 and 7 year old granddaughters to see and have fun so that they would become enthused about Science and the diversity of the world around them, including the normally unseen parts. So I'm looking for a telescope, that can easily be connected to a laptop for viewing if there aren't serious shortcomings to that. I would like it to have a fairly clear view of at least some details for Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn and at least a glimmer of sights like Andromeda. I doubt I can achieve all of this for less than $300 but I'd prefer not to spend more than $700-1000. So, is it possible with some considerable convenience in mind (I don't want to start off making it a job to learn the skies just yet so Go To seems a must) to fulfill this quest. Considering my budget and what accessories I will likely need right away I had considered http://www.highpointscientific.com/...n-nexstar-90-slt-computerized-telescope-22087 this one as an example of what I suppose would just barely fulfill my/our minimal requirements. Am I on the right track? Or would a Celestron Nexstar 6SE” GoTo Schmidt-cassegrain be better. After buying a telescope there will be no upgrading later. I am retiring in November and will be on a tight budget from there on.
