Telescope

I purchased this telescope for my granddaughter aged eight. I would have liked a simpler booklet for set up. But the telescope itself is good value for money.

Pluses
  • Seems adequate for my granddaughter needs.
Downsides
  • Simpler book for set up, more child friendly.

A Great Combination

This microscope and telescope are a great combination. They are a super introduction into the microscopic and astronomy world. This was bought as a present for my son's 11th birthday, he loves them. In fact, so do I as his parent! They open up a really interesting world!

Pluses
  • Ease of use
  • Quality of vision
