I bought this one for my Dad for his birthday last year.

http://www.celestron.com/astronomy/c...ar-102slt.html

I found it on sale for $299.99 and it's been great. He has it up at the lake and while we haven't been able to lock in on any planets yet the automatic features of it are awesome and definitely something I think is great for kids as it's fun and educational to watch the telescope move around on it's own and tell you what you are looking at.

We plan on getting a little deeper into it this year and hope to get some nice views of the larger planets and stuff.

Here is a really crappy pic I took using my iphone over the lens piece...
