Our customers say…
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Brilliant idea! “Bought this for my sons 10th birthday as a last minute extra and I am so pleased that I did. Its brilliant! Easy to assemble with clear instructions and the telescope works so well we could see very clearly. I will definitely be buying this for a few of his friends birthday gifts!” Amazon Customer
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ brilliantly designed product “my 15 year old son spent a few mins putting the telescope together, following the very clear instructions . We are very impressed how well it works and have used it to look at the moon and study the wildlife including finding birds singing in the trees!!! Best lock down purchase so far !!!” Adrian
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Easy to assemble and works BRILLIANTLY! “This was a gift for my nephew and now it’s his favourite toy. He put it together all by himself (he’s 10) and that evening he was amazed whilst looking at the night sky. We love the fact that it is also a zero plastic product, something which was not lost on my nephew! Its incredible quality and the instructions are so clearly written and easy to follow. I think the fact the child builds it themselves means they get a lot more use out if it. He’s using the telescope every night and doesn’t look like the novelty will ware off! worth every penny and highly recommended!” jen41
⭐⭐⭐⭐ Make your own telescope. “This was a great little time filler for both my son and nephew. We did find, however that two pairs of hands were needed with certain parts and a little tape to hold the mirror in place.” Elaine
