Best telescope under $200?

Recommended Posts

For all of us, as we are a camping family. However, my young son (8) is specifically interested in the night sky :).


Any recommendations? I was looking at Home Science Tools as they have no shipping right now, but if they don't have a good option, I'm open to shopping elsewhere.

we've done this. with the binoculars. It's not exactly the same, but it's really portable, and really easier to handle on-the-go. you can get a pretty nice pair at the Bass Pro. We also use the same binoculars for bird watching and various other things when we're out. It's part of my sons "go kit" as he calls it.
