i have just had a quick look about, and for price versus quality, the best value is a bresser skylux . if have a lidl food store in your country, then these telescopes come up every year on special, and will be much cheaper then buying off the internet. if you do have a lidl store were you are then it might be a good idear to phone them, and ask when they will next have the telescopes on special. heres a link to the scope in question.

and if you have got a laptop, then you can buy a webcam that has a ccd chip in it, and attach it to your telescope, and record video of the moon,

theres quite a few diffrent webcams that can be used. heres another link to the adapter you need to attach webcam to the eyepiece on the telescope.

here is a clip of someones moon shot with above webcam, note with the above telescope i posted your moon vid will look as good if not better, also moon will be alot closer viewed through the 4mm eyepiece and the naked eye

but best advice i can give, is to get a good pair of binoculars. something like 10x50 , you will be amazed at what you can see in the night sky with a pair of binoculars. even in light polluted areas. also maybe have a good look around a few astronomy forums. before you take the plunge. but binoculars are a must first buy.
