Which is better a reflector or refractor telescope?

Each telescope has its own advantage, for instance the refractor is better for observing the planets and the moon and the reflector for deep-sky objects (e.g. galaxies). However, the refractor suffers from what is known as chromatic aberration. The third type that I mentioned was the Schmidt Cassegrain telescope.

Regarding this, which telescope is best to buy to view planets?

How much does it cost for a really good telescope?

There are many fine options for less than $300, and at least one great telescope for less than $200 — the StarBlast 4.5-inch Astro from Orion Telescopes & Binoculars (S&T: June 2003, page 46).
