I do plan on doing some astrophotography too with this camera. So I will need a stronger lens. I should be able to get some good shots of constellations with the xsi. Later I can get a good telescope to do planetary shots.

Oh thanks. I'm a little wary about buying online and may just go to a store around here. Where should I go?

Where's "here"?

But there are some excellent on-line retailers. Adorama and B&H Photo Video come immediately to mind.

I really want to go to the store and get it because I don't want to wait. I am on the verge of getting it. I should have the money by tommorow. I am near charlotte nc.

should I wait or is this a good deal. tell me why I shouldn't get this

Got this from a deals forum

Canon Rebel XSi w/18-55mm IS and 55-250mm IS lenses for $645 (Instant)
Canon just started a new instant rebate program for some camera/lens combos yesterday. One instant rebate offer is $200 off instantly if you buy the Rebel XSi kit and the 55-250mm IS lens together. Amazon has the XSi kit for $600 and the 55-250mm lens for $245 which totals to $845. You won't see the instant rebate of $200 until you get to the checkout screen. Add a 50mm f1.8 lens to this deal and you have an excellent DSLR starter set.
