You need to think about your budget and what you want to see when buying a telescope. It's a good idea to figure out what you want to see with your telescope, as there are three main types. There are telescopes.

Retor telescopes are a popular choice for beginners due to their easy to maintain and use style. They are mounted to alt-azimuth mounts so they are simple to use and the mounts themselves are easy to make so the price is less expensive. They are good for showing high-magnified and high-contrast images, so they are best used for focusing on moons and planets.

Smaller telescopes are better for low-magnification targets like nebulas. There are two types of telescope: Dobsonians andNewtonians. Dobsonians are often found attached to the alt-azimuth mount. It's possible to follow the rotation of the night sky more accurately with the help of a nywayanydaynywayanyday, but they require more upkeep.

Catadioptric telescopes can fix issues found in the above types of scope, such as the coma effect, and they are usually equipped with a GoTo system. These systems are used to align your telescope to the sky. There are two types of catadioptrics, the Maksutov-Cassegrain and the Schmidt-Cassegrain. The Maksutov-Cassegrain is better for viewing planets than the Schmidt-Cassegrain models, which are more versatile and feature bigger apertures.
