I've just started with Astronomy. I have a pair of Orion 10X50 Binoculars. Just trying to learn my way around the night sky right now. The other night I was out and saw Jupiter and was able to make out 3 moons with the binos. I was very surprised. I also was able to locate and see M31 (Andromeda Galaxy) for the first time with my binoculars. That was a very good night.
My favorite object to look at through the binoculars is M45 (Pleiades). Just amazing.
I have my eye on an Orion 8" Dob, but that purchase is quite a way down the road.
