My daughter turned six in June and one of the gifts she particularly wanted was a telescope of her own so that she could look at the stars. When looking at available options I was very aware of the fact that not only is she a little clumsy, but she has a two year old brother who is interested in and into everything in her room. So when I saw this telescope on sale for just £7 (RRP is £14-18) I bought it and put it aside for her birthday. This telescope is much smaller and lighter than I was expecting and it did come as an initial shock to me just how light it is, but it is a telescope designed for children and is a bargain price so really I shouldn't have been ...

The celestial objects have always been one of my passions in my free time. I began this interest watching documentaries about this amazingly beautiful science ever since I was a kid. However I had a time when I forgot about it a bit and concentrated my attention on other things. Just recently I wanted to take up some astronomical observation by my own means. That is why I thought buying this economic telescope was the best to start over aiming at the stars and planets near the earth. I bought it for just under £20 on Amazon. The National Geographic 30x telescope is a very portable one which includes a tall enough tripod to enjoy a clear night sky, I would say, ... Read the complete review

My son had decided he wanted a telescope to look up at the stars last year and so I had a look online and saw a national geographic endorsed one selling on play.com for a few pence under ten pounds from memory. I thought that the price sounded reasonable as well as the fact that it was endorsed by national geographic too and so I ordered it for him. When the telescope arrived it was packaged nicely in a cardboard box which showed a picture of the telescope on the front, the national geographic name and logo and from memory a nights sky too. My son was eager to get the telescope out of the box and have a play with it so I allowed him to open it straight away. ... Read the complete review

I became interested in astronomy a few years ago, having always been fascinated by the night sky. My enthusiasm didn't extend to wanting to splash out on a load of expensive gear, however, and I certainly wasn't passionate enough to invest in a proper telescope. But this little National Geographic one caught my eye in Sainsburys a couple of years ago, and, at just £10, I couldn't resist buying it. For the price, I wasn't expecting miracles, just to see the night sky in a little more detail than I could with the naked eye. This little telescope measures just 38cm in length when extended, and has a 30mm objective lens. It is extremely light- perfect for carrying ... Read the complete review

I was really dissappointed with this item. National geographic is a well known brand, that seems to have been stamped onto a piece of chinese made tat! I got it as a present for my younger sister, and it cost around £10 (not expensive, but there are a lot of other gifts you can get for someone around a tenner, that is so much better than this). I got it from the entertainer, a shop were I have bought another thing from that also turned out to be terrible. I wasn't expecting a high quality fully functional telescope, but a telescope good enough to just see stars say a bit bigger (it has written on it how it is capable at star gazing). Well.. ...
