What is a good telescope for a beginner?

Novice Telescopes

Strangely some of the most expensive telescopes are actually the easiest ones to use. Take for example the Meade LX 200 8 inch telescope that retails for just over $2000. This telescope can be set up and have several planets in view within a few hours. The trick is that this telescope has a GPS system and the user does not have to do anything buy soak in all the great views and choose which one to see next based on a inputs to the hand controller. The problem is that most beginners do not want to spend $2000 on their first telescope. As a beginner, you'll have to determine your needs and tailor your buying choices to them. Selecting a manual telescope that is cheaper but slightly harder to use may be your best bet.
