Thanks. The coolest thing I have ever seen was the moon when looking through a REALLY big pair of binoculars. These aren't quite as big but I bet it would still look. Probably shouldn't stare at it for too long since it would damage your eyes

Looking through a telescope, 8-in, at the Moon would be even more impressive if you've never seen it before.

Well, it depends on your budget. You could get a Newtonian which is cheaper than a Schmidt-Cassegrain. also, if you get one with autoguide (for tracking and imaging), then it would be a little more.

You can leave me a private message if you want to discuss it further. Otherwise, check out the sky & telescope's site.

I'm not sure man... It was cool to see it in "3D" with the stereoscopics of 2 lenses in binoculars vs 1 lens/eye in a telescope. I used a set that was attached to a ship deck and they were HUGE, something like this [whoi.edu] EEK!

Warning - This is very very heavy, not easy to carry around if you need something light, a tripod will be needed,
and not good for travel on airlines unless you don't have anything else in your luggage.

3 pounds (almost 1.5 kg).

I own these. They are HUGE. I used them only a few times with a camera attachment to get some photos of the moon. You need a pretty sturdy setup for photography. They're good for looking at constellations on clear nights but otherwise I don't have much use for these anymore.

I've owned this for about 2 years now; their great but very heavy - your neck will hurt if you use it the conventional way. I'd suggest laying down on the ground or a cot for a more comfortable experience.

You will want to get a tripod mount for these along with a tripod for anything beyond a moment of casual viewing. Also, magnifications beyond 10 usually require some type of steadying device for optimal results so while these are a great price, they can be a beast to use without a tripod or similar type device.
