This is the perfect starter telescope for a child. I purchased it for my 8 year old grandson who has expressed interst in the solar system and related subjects. I think this is an excellent choice for the money. When the time comes to up grade I will consider purchasing the same brand. I anticipate that my grandson and I will have many wonderful hours exploring our universe.Read More

I haven't checked in with him lately -- but, he really liked this gift upon receipt. Definitely recommend.Read More
