I'm thinking for the fun of it of buying a telescope. Its mostly just a spur of the moment thing. I'm thinking something in the range of maybe $500 or so. Anyone have any experience/recommendations for brands etc...?

Thanks for the link. I'll do some research, and hopefully buy me one by Christmas time.
