Hi Gautham, It all depends on how much you're willing to spend Check out Amazon.com's Telescope Buying Guide, there's some good information there. This company has a lot of info and a good choice of instruments on sale: Oceanside Photo and Telescope. And I presume you've been here Disclaimer: This post is not intended to be a promotion for Oceanside Photo and Telescope, or their products.

I personally would prefer a pair of powerful binoculars - I own a Minolta Zoom 7-15x35, but I would recommend a Minolta Zoom 8-20x50. Ofcourse, not necessarily Minolta. There are better brands, if you can afford it
