OPTION A:
Celestron NexStar f/10 5SE Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope = $700 ( https://www.celestro...rized-telescope ) -- comes with mount & tripod
45-Degree Erect Image Diagonal = $40 ( https://www.celestro...-image-diagonal )

versus

OPTION B:
Celestron C5 f/10 Spotting Scope = $600 ( https://www.celestro...-spotting-scope ) -- comes with 45-degree diagonal for erect image
Celestron NexStar SLT Computerized Mount = $320 ( https://www.celestro...puterized-mount )It would appear that the NexStar 5SE + 45-Degree Diagonal is the better deal.

The optics would be about the same though, correct? In terms of quality and field of view, etc.
