I have a Jason 675X magnification telescope, and I consider it junk; even though it is a very nice 6 inch diameter telescope.
This camcorder has 800X magnification on the camcorder, and it is fabulous for zeroing in on stuff on the Moon, that my Jason telescope could not see, furthermore its all on video.
it is far more exciting than a telescope, because telescopes are bulky, they take up a lot of space and they are fairly fragile for as large as they are.

I am not all that good with telescopes.
I am thankfull for the fact that you have pointed me out to a few but its is hard to decide without having the knowledge.
For example Schmidt-Newtonian or reflector at this time doe not mean much to me... maybe i should educate my self a bit more. Idealy i would just like to take one out of the box and do the job for me without the hasle!

I also looked into buying a telescope but I think for taking pictures its a bit more tricky than it seems....the one I saw for beginners was a celestron astromaster 130EQ...
