I’m totally new to Astronomy, and I’ve been using Binoculars for the past 9 months. I’m looking now to buy a telescope and have got a Celestron SkyProdigy 102, but cannot tell if it is good or not, or should I return it – I got a good discount price on it compared to what the general cost seems to be. I’ve never looked through a telescope before so I dont know what I should expect to see with this model. The manual talks about seeing deep space Galaxies, but I couldn’t see any; nor could I see Saturn’s rings.
Can anyone advise if this is a good telescope or not please?
