Refractors

Orion Observer 70mm II AZ Refractor Side

Orion Observer 70mm provides good value for the price. It is definitely a decent entry level telescope.

Meade Polaris 80 EQ Refractor Telescope Main

Planetary and Lunar images this telescope provides are enough to mesmerize any beginner. Especially for the ones who are living near big cities.
But the mount is hard to use and wobbly.

Meade Infinity 102mm AZ Refractor Telescope

Meade Infinity 102 is a great telescope for beginners. It is easy-to-use, portable and its optics are surprisingly good.

Meade Infinity 90mm AZ Refractor Telescope Main 2

Meade Infinity 90 is one of the best refractors at this price range, if not the best. The combination of the long focal length and 90mm aperture simply provides great planetary and lunar performance.

Meade Infinity 80 provides great optical power and portability for its price. But it comes with its downsides such as a plastic mount and short optical tube. 

Infinity 70

Meade Infinity 70 is one of the best budget telescopes you can buy.

Meade Instruments Infinity 60mm AZ Refractor Telescope 2

Meade 60 is one of the cheapest, buyable telescope models. If you can’t stretch your budget 20$ for Meade 70, it may be a reasonable choice.

Meade 50

Meade Infinity 50 is the cheapest “real” telescope you can buy. It is OK to buy it but you should know that you will get a 40$ telescope after all.

When it comes to affordable, well-made, good quality telescopes Orion is a company that delivers perfectly. For the 300$ price-tag, Orion 9024 AstroView 90mm Equatorial Refractor Telescope is an easy choice.
