If I wanted a budget starter 'scope, for DSO imaging and visual use, I might consider one of these (or similar used noting the "ED" designation f7.5 80mm and positive reviews):

For visual use or planetary imaging adding an 8" SCT would be nice, and that's about as much 'scope as the LX70 can carry well, they can be bought used for about $200 or so.
