I've been researching about telescopes lately and I would love to have one.
I don't have much money, I can spend about 200 Euro, I know it is not much for a telescope, but I am not expecting to see galaxies, I just want to watch the moon a bit and maybe some other planets and take some pictures.
Because of my low budget I have decided to get a refractor telescope, I am thinking of getting the Bresser Skylux 70/700, I have heard some good reviews about Bresser and this telescope.
Heres a sample video
What do you think, should I get this telescope?
And do you maybe have any usefull tips for me?

Hi, someone posted about this telescope you can make.
Cheaper and better than shop ones apparantly.
I'm going to try and build one one day.
If you really want a telescope that will show a lot of objects, and will allow development in the future it would be the SkyWatcher 130M, which is a motorised 5-inch telescope. Currently £160 plus delivery on www.warehouseexpress.co.uk -- excellent value
