The quality of any telescope is about the optics. You go with cheap Chinese glass, you will be faced with chromatic issues, reflections, and aberrations.
Japanese glass is decent and cost effective, there are different types also.
I recently bought a complete set of Japanese Polossle eye pieces for my smaller scope, under $100, and very decent.
What you will see depends on aperture F/D and the power of the eyepiece.
My small scope is 114MM x 1000and 20 X eyepiece, see M31 quite well, nothing like my 300MM scope at the same power.
