Celestron Starhopper 6"
This is my first telescope, and I've had it about two years now. I really have learned a LOT using this telescope. It still amazes me with its ability to resolve details and moons as well as it does when I observe Jupiter or Saturn.

Ive also been able to locate and view DSOs as well. The Great Orion Nebula is amazing when viewed at low power through this beast.

I rated ease of use at 8 only because the scope is rather large (Yes i realize that its not a 20" obsession) and can be a bear to haul out when fully assembled. Still, it hasn't deterred me from using it.

Great scope and a great price!

me again!

I forgot to mention that I agree with the other reviewers.  This scope stays in collimation incredibly well!  I have only collimated it twice in two years and its still dead on!
