If you are an amateur you will be better off buying binoculars. Binoculars are perfect for viewing deep sky objects and are much easier to handle. Telescopes are tough to handle. Remember, the objects on the sky are contantly in motion because of the earth's rotation. You can't just aim your telescope to jupiter and look as long as you like. The telescope needs to be slowly moved as the earth's rotates which requires precise movement.
