This was the telescope we settled on as a beginner scope for my 10 yr old who had saved up to buy one. He LOVES it!
It’s an easy enough telescope to setup and use even for a young aspiring astronomer! As a family we’ve seen mars and gotten a closer look at the moon. At some point we’ll pack it into the car and go further out of town to see other stars and planets!
Here’s a great idea… list all the ways that Geeks Will Rule the World! In the 21st Century you should know how to type, use a mouse and navigate some form of computer. You just have to! To fill out some forms, to gather information on a topic. Libraries no longer carry nor can keep up with the flood of information that is presented to people daily, especially small libraries. Sad.
There are so many ways to keep up with information especially using the internet. There is social media, new sites, blogs and RSS feeds. So yeah we geeks will rule unless everyone keeps up.
