$130 is a very low price for a telescope, so how about $190 for a low-end model? You could see the rings of Saturn, Jupiter's moons, lunar craters, and get decent views along the Milky Way with this scope from Orion.

Another option would be a small refractor, which will not gather as much light as the Dobsonian, but would be up higher on a tripod, and maybe more rugged.

Orion is a good company, and you'd do a lot better buying from them than a store that only sells scopes on the side.
