I was starting to get re-acquainted with my Meade ETX90. I have had it for some many years but just haven’t made the time to take it outside. At first, I was just pointing it out an open house window to look at the Moon or Jupiter. But, got to start some place.
But, I quickly found out that my two young children wanted to look through it also. I definitely wanted to encourage this but also was a little concern that they might break or stratch something. So, I started looking for an option for them.
I found the Celeston FirstScope telescope. I really liked it because the price was very reasonable and everything was included in the package. The reflector telescope included a small stand and two eyepieces: a 20mm and a 4mm. The telescope has a 76mm aperture which compares similarly to the ETX90 at 90mm. Looks like a good telescope for young kids.
