If you want to view more than Jupiter, Saturn, & the moon (which is OK with this size scope), you will need at least a 6-inch newtonian reflector or a 3-inch refractor. The concept of a larger aperture is not primarily for more power, but, more light gathering - dimmer objects are more readily observerable; therefore, the cost will be more like $350.00 to $450.00.

The higher you go in price, you will get more aperture in the telescope. This means that larger aperture will give you the power to observe farther nebulae, galaxies, globular cluster etc.
