What are the advantages and disadvantages of a reflector telescope?

Pros and Cons of Reflector Telescopes

One of the primary advantages of a reflector telescope is cost. Reflector telescopes often cost less money than other telescopes to produce, and this savings is often passed on to the consumer. Reflector telescopes also produce some of the best and brightest telescopic images, allowing you to see farther in to space. Unfortunately, reflector telescopes are also very fragile, which severely limits their portability. Reflector telescopes also leave their mirrors open to the elements, which means that they need to be cleaned often and periodically readjusted.
