I want to buy a telescope for use on my back deck. This will be my first telescope as an adult (had a cheap one when younger and loved it). Looking for a wide range of viewing opportunities at night (no terrestrial viewing). I live in a low light (rural) area and will be able to store the telescope just inside a set of double doors off the deck so size/weight isn't a big issue. <br /><br />I am thinking about buying an Orion SkyQuest XT10 telescope. This is based on internet research with little else to go on. <br /><br />I would like to get some input from more experienced people, any help appreciated. <br /><br />Also, is the IntelliScope Computer Controller going to be a good idea to help a newbie have success up front?
