Editorial Review: Review:
Suitable for children aged over eight, this fun, well made telescope really works, and could be enjoyed by a wide range of children--indeed, as its name suggests, almost any young person with an interest in the skies above them. It is simple to train the telescope on the moon quickly and the 30 mm diameter objective lens, combined with the three eyepieces, with their magnifications of 20x, 30x and 40x, give increasingly fascinating, indeed breathtaking, views. Looking for stars proves more difficult and this might not be a brilliant toy to try with an impatient child on a cold winter evening. Hours of fun can be had, however, with patience, on a completely cloudless night.

The telescope is mounted on a small tripod so the best plan is to sit at a small table or lean on a large, steady surface. The tilting mechanism works well but it is perhaps a shame that it doesn't swivel too. The equipment is robust and well made in plastic and would last a long time given appropriate care. The instructions are very basic, leaving it pretty much to common sense and more tips would have been helpful. The accompanying CD was a little disappointing, containing a restatement of the brief instruction booklet and advertisements for other products made by the same company. Common sense is all that's needed, however, and once the child has got the hang of it, this telescope could be enjoyed by young bird watchers, weathermen and astronomers, as well as would-be sailors, pirates, detectives and spies!--Rebecca Pickering
