My oldest granddaughter got a microscope for Christmas. These slides were perfect, already prepared, and kept her very fscinated.. Soon, she can make her own slides!
When I started assembling the telescope, I noticed a piece was broken. It was a plastic piece that holds the telescope to the tripod. I went to the hardware store and bought a piece of pvc pipe and fixed it because it wasn't worth sending it back just for that. Plus it was a present for my son who was already disappointed that his new telescope was broken. Other than that the telescope itself is fine. It's a good starter telescope but I'm not sure how long it will last since it has many plastic parts.
I bought this telescope for my 10 year old granddaughter who is a science geek. She loves it and is more interested in astronomy. It is very well constructed and feels substantial, not plastic like a toy. Great buy and well worth the money.
