Refractor or Reflector?

Which one should you be going for? Well, there is a distinct difference between the two types and each type has its advantage. Reflecting telescopes use mirrors inside the tube; whereas, refractor telescopes use lenses and therefore are often bigger and heavier. Because of this, refractors have become popular as cheaper, lighter and more portable telescopes (great for beginners too). Generally, refractor telescopes tend to be better for observing planets and the moon; whereas, reflectors are better for deep-sky objects such as galaxies and nebulas.
