The Geertop 90X portable astronomical refractor tabletop telescope is another child sized starter kit ideal if you want to get your children interested in astronomy or bird watching.
Marketed as a tabletop telescope it can also simply be placed ready for use on a cabinet or on the floor ready for use, day or night.
It offers enough magnification to see the moon clearly and the major planets of the Solar System. Alternatively, use it during the day to zoom in on birds at your feeder station or wildlife in the far distance if you’re lucky enough to live somewhere with views of an open landscape.
Its robust design mean that it will withstand a lot of use. It will appeal to children of all ages, including teenagers, and should serve the interests of the family well for many years to come, certainly until you’re ready to upgrade to another.
