I'm surprised you haven't received any answers before mine. The scope you
quote is a 144mm or 4" meaning it's at the low end of scopes, i.e. not a
great deal of detail if you plan on looking beyond the solar system.
Certainly good for looking at the moon and nearby objects like the planets.
Even then higher end (not necessarily the highest) might suit your needs.
That'd depend on what you hope to see. That said don't give up on your 114mm.
Plenty can still be seen through it.
might be a sight worth checking out in your case. Otherwise google "small
telescope astronomy" forstarters for some more on how to get the most of your
scope. I have only a 76mm (3") at the moment and plan over next few months to
update to a 10" dobsonian with tracking ability. Goto is overrated imho as
one can oft get there just as fast by star hopping. Also I'd suggest joining
an astronomy forum or even a local astronomy club (you can google for those
in your area). Always someone willing to help there and a one on one is
invaluable. I haven't had that sort of help myself being a shift worker which
is prob why I've gotten better results re astrophotography than what I was
told was possible with my current setup

There is only one rule to attaining gnosis. Disregard all rules. They only
serve to hold you back.
