I use the SkyView lite app on my phone to identify stars and planets...... even the ISS and Hubble space telescope are on their. - and more importantly, it's free!
So for someone like me who has never has a star gazing scope or know little about them, what is a good introduction beginners product & price point in the purchase of one that makes the object clearer to see ?
Binoculars are a good place to start. There's lots to see. They're lighter and cheaper.
The Skywathcher Heritage 130p looks like a pretty reasonable starting scope.
One suspects nothing will be perfect because others will always have a pricier and better scope with optics. Then one starts spending really silly money that isn't worth it for what one needs to see.It's a fair choice, certainly. There are some small niggles, but it's probably fair to say that it's built to a price so it's never going to be perfect. All you really need is a nice steady table or similar to stand it on and a comfortable chair.
