The definition of a moon is a natural object (or satellite) that orbits a planet. To my understanding Saturn's rings are made up of space debris, and they must orbit around the planet. Does that mean that each individual piece of debris and dust in Saturn's rings, and other planet's rings, count as moons?

Can I say thank you for letting me join I have a autistic son Mattie who love star gazing so on a very limited budget got a meade Polaris 130eq md for 120 of eBay any help with how to improve it for my son remember we have a very limited budget so any ideas many thanks in advance
So i am very new to the world of astronomy and i just want to stargaze. I would like a telescope to look at the Moon in decent detail and maybe some other planets too and some stars too. I type this to get some help. Below i have multiple options for telescopes. I am on a strict budget, under $50 and i want a telescope that just does the job. i do not need any extreme scope just one that'll do the things mentioned above.
Here are the options:
Which one of those will be the most suitable for me and which one would you recommend.
BTW, i live in Birmingham, UK.
I would like to know, what eyepieces do you use.
Im planning on to buying new ones. But i dont want anything cheap.(Not really expensive either) (Max +-160 dollars). I would like to have some eyepieces with big field of view for nebulas, galaxies etc. , and then some eyepieces which are great for observing planets with lot of details.
Some good eye relief would be great too.
My telescope is Dobson 203/1200.
Thanks for your suggestions!!!
