Something very interesting I've discovered in my telescope research. Those in my price range are nearly all on back order OR out of stock with no knowledge if they'll ever be available again.

Was there a sudden explosion of interest in astronomy that I missed?

Having a tough time understanding all the 'specs' and which is best for what. Looks like reflectors are the best for DSO's, (deep space objects like nebula, binary stars, etc), BUT there are few with the bells and whistles of the Catadioptrics.... and some of those bells and whistles I really want.
