    Hey guys :)

    I might be posting in the wrong forum but i figure telescopes are hardware right ? :)

    I want to buy a telescope but i dont know the first thing about them so i figured go with the price tag .. the more expensive is better but i see some 100$ telescopes that have 450x zoom and 300$ ones with 307x zoom so im wondering what is better and what else is important about telescopes or even more important than zoom ?

    Help ? Anyone ? :)

    I'd try an astronomy forum for a specific question like that but I'd imagine the lens quality would be more important than the zoom? My old astronomy teacher once told me all those home telescopes get the same magnification as a pair of cheap binoculars because they're not big enough but I don't know how true that is so I'm gonna shut up now.
