Smithsonian 40mm Refractor Telescope with Tabletop
I bought this for my grandson for his birthday as he wanted a telescope. Maybe he was too young to really appreciate this one (he was only 7 years old). It only came as a tabletop as stated, but I think I now wish I had gotten one with a floor stand instead. All in all however, I think he enjoyed it and the price was very good for a telescope.Read More
