      Got this for my 8 year old - he loves it. Easy to use and it's nice and compact so we can leave it in the corner of the tv room and it's not in the way.

      This telescope arrived in time and included all of the pieces, however the instructions were not very user friendly and I'm still not sure how to use all of the different lenses. It also came with a star chart and computer software but I have yet to give those a try. It is adjustable to height so it's growing with us! Which is nice.
