How much should I spend on my first telescope?

How Much To Spend On Your First Telescope

It's a good idea to set a budget for yourself when you're buying your first telescope. This will help to keep you from overspending, and allow you to narrow down your options. As a rule, beginner telescopes tend to cost less than $300, and vast majority of them cost less than $200. If someone quotes you higher prices than this, chances are they are trying to sell you a telescope that is too complex for your needs. With the proper amount of research, you can even find telescopes below $100. Manufacturers such as Meade offer factory stores that sell older models at great discount.
