Bill Borne...are you asleep? Mars stopping by soon... Telescope advice anyone?

Bill Borne...are you asleep? You always alert us to coming photo-related events, but I've seen nothing on the upcoming July 27 Mars Opposition. Has it been cancelled? I hope so, because I really can't afford a decent telescope or try to learn about astrophotography in a few days - I have enough trouble just trying take halfway decent photos of the neighbors' dogs...

For those who know, any advice on an affordable telescope, not only for basic astronomy by terrestrial viewing as well?
