Telescope Recommendation.

Recommended Posts

Our 9 year old son is already thinking about Christmas! His two sets of grandparents always gift him with money. He wants to spend a part of it on telescope. His budget will be around $100. Is it possible to get a decent one in this price range? 


Thank you in advance!

I would get some good quality binoculars in lieu of a telescope. Binoculars are great for stargazing, whereas a cheaper telescope would probably be frustrating.


I think the binocs we got were around $40 off Amazon, the brand is Celestron. They came recommended for stargazing and have not disappointed us.
