Tonight while out walking I looked up at the night sky and started thinking about telescopes.

I thought back to long ago when my younger brother got a telescope for selling items. I think it may have been greeting cards. I remember looking at the moon through his telescope.
His telescope was a reflector that had just a cardboard body. Tonight I thought about what type of telescope I would buy if I decided to get one. Would I get a refractor or a reflector? Would I get one that is motorized so that I could track objects? Would I get one that connects to the internet for positioning? Would it have an integrated camera? So many things to think about.
Or, perhaps I should just get a simple telescope to see how often I would use one before investing more money.
What do you think?
